The History of N-Space: Part 1: War of the Gods

Two of the many faces of the two greatest heroes of N-Space.

Its hard to pin down just one history of N-Space as technically it has an infinite number of different histories.

Created by an all powerful entity, N-Space restarts whenever it comes to its natural end. Whilst almost every universe around it dies, N-Space stands in the middle of creation, endlessly repeating itself forever.

Each time does not have the same history of course. It can do, as everything in N-Space is random, but there are obviously an infinite number of outcomes, all of which will be played out an infinite number of times.  The entity’s motives for creating N-Space to be immortal are still a matter of conjecture.

Still every life form in N-Space’s personal history has changed a countless number of times, but in this article we will be taking a look at the most recent history of N-Space.

This information came from a time capsule that crash landed into our universe in the year 1947 in the Mexican town of Roswell.

The time capsule was created by the final race to exist in N-Space (or rather that version of it.) A race known as the Mesraks. The Mesraks evolved on the last planet capable of supporting life in N-Space. A highly advanced culture, they searched the universe for other life forms only to come to the conclusion that they were alone.

The Mesraks, desperate to make contact with another species would later discover time travel. Travelling backwards throughout their own universe’s history. The Mesraks were mindful not to change its events or else they could never have been born, but they were still able to document the history of their version of N-Space which they stored in a museum, held at the very end of creation itself.

Why they sent this capsule to our universe, no one knows, but it is believed that they were sent to many alternate universes. Perhaps the Mesraks just simply wanted as many people as possible to know their universes history, or perhaps they had foreseen that these capsules and the information within them would play an important role in the history of the planets they were sent too?

Whatever the case, the memory banks within the unmanned capsule survived the crash and were quickly taken in by the government.

Experts and professors from all over the world would come to investigate and translate the information, and it would subsequently be shared among all of the great world powers leaders. It is still generally kept from the mainstream public however.

All of the information contained in the memory banks has still not been completely translated. Many of the men responsible for translating the memory banks (who were given false civilian identities after they left the government to cover up their past as paranormal investigators for their respective governments,) such as Sydney Newman, Terry Nation, Nigel Kneale, Matt Groening and Ishiro Honda would later go on to use the information in the memory banks as the basis for films and television series such as Godzilla, Doctor Who and Quatermass.

The government didn’t mind, as the fact that the general public believed that important figures from N-Space like Godzilla, and the Doctor are characters of fiction, meant that they would never suspect the truth.

Still other bits and pieces of information have occasionally trickled out, become urban myths among the public and have thus led to the creation of other films and television series.

N-Space is very much real, and its history is truly fascinating. Compiled here is the first of a three part series containing everything that has been translated up until the time of writing, 2018. More information will undoubtedly be unveiled soon enough, but for now this represents the most of what we know about N-Space.

This section will detail N-Space’s creation, the war between God and the Anti God, the lives of N-Space’s two greatest heroes, the Doctor and Romana, the history of their people, the Time Lords, the rise of various alien empires in the Anti God’s place, from the Daleks to the Furons, and finally the early history of earth.

Creation

N-Space was created by a powerful creature whose origins are still somewhat shrouded in mystery. This creature who came to be known as God by many inhabitants of N-Space didn’t create the universe alone.

A space ship from N-Space’s future, called Terminus travelled backwards in time and caused a massive explosion when it deposited its unstable fuel. God would harness the power of this inferno and use it to eventually form his own universe which became known as N-Space.

N-Space was not the first universe to ever exist. God had seen countless universes come and go, and he had apparently attempted to intervene in many of them. Though God had saved countless lives across trillions of universes, he ultimately felt that he no matter how hard he tried evil would always remain in the multiverse.

God decided that he would create his own universe that would be free of evil. Unfortunately however from the very beginning of N-Space’s history, God’s dark twin, simply known as the Anti God would attempt to corrupt and destroy N-Space.

According to some sources God created his first species, the Nibblonians, a decade or so before he created his universe to try and stop the Anti God from entering his universe, which sadly failed.

God created N-Space to constantly regenerate itself. It would have the normal lifespan of a universe, but once it died it would revert to its original form and start all over again. All of its life forms would be recreated in the process and their history would repeat, though as everything in N-Space was random there may be some differences. Not all life forms would be reborn in each version of N-Space as a result.

For instance in one version earth might not exist, whilst in another say Mars might not be invaded and destroyed, and whole generations of Martians will born who weren’t in the previous iteration. Still as all possibilities are played out an infinite number of times, then all life forms will be reborn at some point.

No life form would retain the memory of their previous lives however, so as far as they were aware they were always on their first and seemingly only life.

No one knows why God created his universe to be like this, but a number of possibilities have been proposed, by both the researchers in our universe and the Mesraks.

1/ Many believe that it was an accident. God being an immortal creature may have imbued his own essence into the universe which made it immortal too. Some have argued that God and the Anti God got caught up in the universes never ending cycle too, and that they are forced to relive the same lives over and over again against their will.

Just like all of the creatures of N-Space, when each iteration of N-Space ends, God and the Anti God are returned to how they were at the beginning of N-Space, with their memories of everything that happened after being wiped.

Proponents of this theory therefore argue that N-Space’s history is the same in most versions, as God and the Anti God will repeat exactly the same actions as they did before, with the only key differences being that sometimes the Anti God wins, and sometimes God wins.

2/ God may have created the universe for less altruistic reasons. It is believed that God and his sworn archenemy the Anti-God may in fact be friends who view their rivalry as a game to keep themselves amused. In every single iteration of N-Space, the Anti God will try and destroy it. Sometimes he wins, sometimes God wins, but neither have ever managed to destroy one another and it is believed that this is because they both enjoy fighting each other for the fate of N-Space. Others dispute this however, and argue that God shows genuine concern for his creations, and that the only reason he can’t kill the Anti God or vice versa is because neither can actually die. Its is possible however that God simply feigns concern for his “children” to get them on his side.

3/ That God created the universe in this way so that no life form would ever go to waste. As the universe will repeat itself again and again, and as everything is random and by chance, then every possibility can be played out. Someone might say die in the Dalek invasion in one version, but in the next where the Daleks might not even exist, then they will go on to live a happy and long life. In the next version of events the Titanic may not sink and the 1500 plus innocent people who died in one version, will live out their full potential in the next.

However some have disputed this explanation pointing out that its actually crueller to force every life form to relive their own lives forever. Whilst its true that in certain cases someone who died young in one version, might not in the next, ultimately they will still have to live out the version where they die young, or suffer a life of unbearable hardship an infinite number of times as well.

Furthermore there are certain circumstances where someone would be forced to relive the same horrible existence over and over again regardless of the outcome. Take for instance someone born during the middle of a terrible period in human history that lasts for their entire life time? Someone born to abusive or even psychotic parents? There is no way that all or at least most of their lives throughout eternity would not be absolutely horrific.

Imagine being made to live through these periods of history again and again forever!

4/ It is possible that God created the universe to restart itself whenever it ends because he wanted to build the perfect universe, but knew he would never be able to do it in one universes life time, so rather than just create possibly billions of universes, he decided to make one relive itself over and over until he could find a way to get it right. Proponents of this theory argue that his tactics for helping his creations in each version will change somewhat, but in the latest version of N-Space he was trying a more subtle approach which he found the most effective.

Each time N-Space would restart itself it would create multiple parallel universes. All of these universes would repeat themselves forever, just like N-Space too.

Many of these alternate universes created around N-Space’s histories have been documented by the Mesrak’s as well and were included in the same time capsule that crashed into N-Space. Not as much attention has been paid to studying their history, but the history of some of these universes history has been well documented.

In fact the first such capsule from the Mesrak’s that was sent to our world contained the histories of one of these universe, dubbed Z-Space. It first landed in the 1800s when it crashed into the English countryside. Whilst its presence was kept hidden from the public, unlike in the Roswell crash, the translation circuits were not damaged and so the government was able to decipher all of the information in the capsule, making Z-Space the universe that we know the most about, including even N-Space itself!

Just as with N-Space, the history of this universe would inspire several science fiction stories in our universe.

A universe dubbed D-Space’s history is the most researched after N-Space and Z-Space meanwhile, thanks to the tireless work of researcher Gene Roddenberry. We will briefly be looking at the history of universes such as D and Z-Space too, as many of their inhabitants have crossed over into N-Space from time to time.

Whatever the reason, upon creating N-Space, God would immediately be forced to do battle with his counterpart, the Anti God. No one knows where this monster came from, but since the creation of N-Space he has been obsessed with destroying it, and has waged a war against its people again and again. The Anti God also sent many of its Demons into the other universes created around N-Space, such as his favorite (and most twisted) child, the Beast who was dispatched to M-Space. The Beast however would be opposed by God’s children from the start of M-Space’s history. They would eventually imprison the Demon deep within a planet by a black hole, but not before he created hordes of Demonic children who would terrorize various worlds in M-Space, ensuring the Anti God’s legacy expanded beyond N-Space.

Whilst M-Space was able to overcome the Demons eventually, not all universes would be as lucky. Many that the Anti God sent his children too, would be completely overrun and turned into the hell that the Anti God had wished to make N-Space into.

Early Years and Feud Between The Gods

The enemy of all life in N-Space. The Anti God!

From the beginning of this version of N-Space, the Anti God would begin his war against the rest of creation by creating monsters, and transforming various inhabitants of N-Space into monsters themselves.

Among his earliest creations were the Great Vampires. The Great Vampires were originally a giant race of hostile reptile monsters who waged war on the rest of the universe. They slaughtered thousands of worlds even before they were Vampires!

Admiring their bloodlust and cruelty, the Anti God would twist their bodies and turn them into immortal, vastly more powerful Demons who needed the blood of natural creatures to survive.

The Great Vampires would wipe out billions of species across the universe and became for a while the most feared creatures in the cosmos. The Great Vampires had the power to transform other natural creatures into similar, but lesser blood drinking Demons like themselves. These lesser Vampires also had the power to turn others into members of their kind, regardless of their species.

Many of these lesser Vampires were disposed of once the Great Vampires had used them for all they worth, but a few would be kept as foot soldiers for the Great Vampires, whilst others would even manage to escape their Great Vampire masters and take over other worlds on their own.

Lesser Vampires generally couldn’t survive without their masters. If a Great Vampire was killed then all of the Vampires it sired were killed as well. However there were a few lesser Vampires who were able to sever the psychic connection between themselves and their Vampiric masters. As a result these Vampires were able to survive long after the great Vampires were killed off in a war with the Time Lords.

One group of these free lesser Vampires would later arrive on the earth at the dawn of early man. These Vampires would quickly overrun humanity with their super strength, and alien technology.

Humanity was rounded up into cages, bled like animals for the Vampires, and hunted for sport! The Vampires would even hold a massive human hunt to see who could kill the most amount of humans every year.

The Vampires would rule the world for roughly 1000 years, but their time would come when the earth was invaded by the last of an all powerful race of aliens known as the Fendahl. The Fendahl killed most of the Vampires who were the dominant life forms, but the last of the Vampires with their advanced technology were able to slay the monster (though its essence would survive buried under the ground, but more on that later.)

The remaining Vampires meanwhile, weakened by the Fendahl were overthrown by humanity and most of them were killed. A few survived however and would continue to prey on humanity, making more people into Vampires like them throughout the centuries. The Vampires whilst never becoming the dominant race again would still nevertheless be able to spread to almost every part of the earth, leading to Vampire myths appearing in every culture on the world.

Aside from the Vampires, the Anti God would also create gigantic horned Demons capable of the most devastating destruction. Much like with Vampires, myths about Demons would subsequently emerge on trillions of worlds across the universe.

The Destroyer, one of the many Demons created by the Anti God to terrorise planets all over the universe.

The Anti God also created powerful disembodied spiritual creatures such as the Nestene Consciousness and The Great Intelligence who would also go on to terrorise many worlds too.

The Anti God was also responsible for the creation of the Brain Spawn, a race of disembodied brains who had the power to drain their enemies intelligence before destroying them. The Brain Spawn were among the most dangerous of all the Anti God’s creations. According to an ancient legend from the Nibblonians, the Brain Spawn were the first monsters the Anti God created.

One of the most dangerous monsters ever created by the Anti God however was Sutekh the Destroyer. Sutekh was an Osiran, one of the most advanced races in the universe. Though the Osirans had nothing to fear, even from the Anti Gods Demons and Vampires, Sutekh deep down was always terrified that one day another race might grow to rival his own in power. He refuted his brother, and the commander of the Osirans Horus’ claim that all sentient life was their kin. Sutekh wanted to kill all other life forms to prevent any from one day threatening him.

The Anti God, without Sutekh’s knowledge gave him remarkable power, far beyond that of even his fellow Osirans, just to see what he would do with them. With these powers, Sutekh would destroy his own world, and billions of other worlds across the universe. Even the Anti God became terrified of his cruelty.

As the Doctor would later say Sutekh’s name would be abominated in every civilised world throughout the known universe.

Sutekh would later be defeated when the last of the Osirans working together would succeeded in trapping him on earth beneath a Pyramid where he would remain for many thousands of years.

Among the Anti God’s most dangerous creations included the Snake like creature known as the Mara, the vastly powerful Demonic entity known as Fenric, and the terrible Zodin, a gigantic Demon lady with hair and claws made of fire. Zodin would become one of the most dangerous adversaries of the renegade Time Lord known as the Doctor, who said later in his 6th incarnation that they didn’t make villains like Zodin anymore.

Arguably the Anti Gods most evil creation however was the gigantic Dragon, King Ghidorah. Created near the beginning of the universe, King Ghidorah was a virtually indestructable three headed monster that could breath lightening!

Ghidorah the three headed monster.

It would go on to become one of the most feared monsters throughout the history of the universe. Highly advanced races who were aware Ghidorah was headed for their world, would often just flee their home planet altogether rather than actually face the monster.

Throughout the entire history of N-Space only two worlds that would successfully drive off King Ghidorah. Gallifrey, and our planet Earth.

King Ghidorah attacked Gallifrey, and caused mass devastation on the planet with all of the Time Lords weapons at first having no effect on the golden giant. The Time Lords bow ships which they had used to wipe out the Great Vampires simply bounced off of the monsters scales!

Eventually however the Time Lords would defeat King Ghidorah by using mind weapons which very nearly destroyed the Dragon. Though King Ghidorah would manage to escape the Time Lords, his mind was permanently damaged by the Time Lords attack, and this would later make him vulnerable to being controlled by other alien life forms.

Many would be conquerors would, using their own primitive mind controlling technology, succeed in taking control of King Ghidorah’s now fragile mind (though it had three heads, they all acted as one) and make him their puppet.

However even with King Ghidorah’s unstable mind, the monster was still not easy to control, and it would often eventually break free of its masters control and destroy them as penance.

Earth would successfully drive off King Ghidorah thanks to the help of another remarkable giant monster, Godzilla, but more on that later.

Whether in control of another evil race, or acting on its own, King Ghidorah would go on to destroy millions of more worlds throughout its bloody history.

God and the Anti God rarely fought one another one on one, and would most often use their minions to fight a war across the universe.

Among the creatures God created to battle the Anti God’s Demons included the Chronovores, creatures who could devour time itself and thus erase the Anti God’s mistakes from the universe itself. Eventually however the Chronovores would become too powerful and unpredictable and so God would banish them to outside of N-Space, though a few would manage to escape and have remained ever since.

A more successful creation of God were the Mothras. The Mothras were an all female race of god like creatures that were sent to protect individual worlds from evil forces. The Mothras also had the power to reproduce asexually too, ensuring that a successor could be created. God however ultimately didn’t make as many Mothras as he had hoped, as the Anti God soon created various gigantic, reptillian, vampiric winged monsters called Gyaos to counteract the Mothras.

Gyaos, one of the Anti God’s vilest creations

The Gyaos and the Mothra’s would battle one another across all of space, and many worlds were destroyed in the crossfire. God stopped making Mothras to ensure that no more worlds would be destroyed in the war, but a few Mothra’s would survive and continue to fight against evil across the universe, whilst one Mothra egg would later crash onto the earth during the age of the Dinosaurs. Mothra’s egg would be preserved for many millions of years under the earth, before awakening in modern times.

One of Gods greatest individual champions was a being known simply as Light. A vastly powerful being of pure energy, Light followed Gods orders blindly and helped him battle against monsters such as the Vampires, the Gyaos and the Demons. He literally had no goals or desires other than to obey his God.

The Guardians meanwhile were a race of sub God creatures that both God and the Anti God created together. They hoped that they could sway individual members of both races to serve them willingly, having created them to be capable of both good and evil. Even more powerful than the Mothras, the Guardians could alter time and were created out of the dark and positive forces that existed within the universe itself.

The Guardians would ultimately prove to be more dangerous than even the Chronovores and wiped one another out in devastating wars, with only two remaining on either side. The remaining Guardian who served God would be dubbed the White Guardian, whilst the remaining Guardian who served the Anti God was dubbed the Black Guardian.

God and the Anti God would eventually face one another in a one on one fight in our galaxy (or rather N-Space’s version of it.)

The battle destroyed various planets, but eventually God was able to defeat the Anti God who retreated to earth to recover. Many believe that it was the devastation caused by this battle, as well as the battle of the Guardians, that convinced God to not interfere directly in his creations lives.

The earth at that point was in the early stages of human development, long after the Vampires rule had come to an end, but long before the development of Atlantis or even the arrival of the Daemons. It was seen by the Anti God as being a relatively insignificant planet in the grand scheme of things, and thus the perfect place to hide.

The Anti God would create his final monster whilst on earth. A disembodied spiritual creature, similar to, but much more powerful and evil than even the Nestene Consciousness and The Great Intelligence. This monster which he would call Satan, felt a closer connection to the Anti God than many of his other creations, even calling him “father.”

Eventually God was able to find and defeat the Anti God in his weakened state on earth and banish him to a prison that existed just outside N-Space. Whilst trapped in this prison, the Anti God couldn’t even escape to another universe and was forced to watch as N-Space carried on without its involvement.

The Anti God however just before his banishment was able to get back at God by cursing him. Satan had created a time code that could allow its proponents to travel backwards and forwards in time. Unlike the later, more refined time travel of the Time Lords however, it was unstable and could potentially lead to catastrophe. Worse still whenever it was activated, God himself was forced to create the time portal. Thus God would be forced to be complicit in the reckless and dangerous use of time travel across N-Space. The Anti God would make sure that his minions would spread the time code across various worlds across the universe leading to the destruction of many worlds. God would try and break the curse throughout the remainder of N-Space’s history, but sadly he would never manage too.

Satan meanwhile would continue to try and free its father, whilst also having fun toying with humanity and causing their suffering in many ways for thousands of years. Eventually however Satans experiments with breaking the barriers between universes would draw in the presence of an alien servant of God. Jesus Christ.

Once regarded as God’s greatest warrior against the Demons and Vampires of outer space, Jesus entered into the mythologies of many planets across the universe, but his final battle would be on earth when he was finally able to defeat Satan.

Sadly Jesus was not able to kill Satan, so instead he sealed the monster deep beneath the earth in a cylinder where it would remain for close to 2000 years before the end of the 20th century.

With the Anti God gone many of his most vile creations would be banished or destroyed and the universe would return to some sense of normality, though many new threats and evils would soon emerge to take the Anti God’s place.

The two surviving Guardians, the White and Black Guardian’s power would be reduced by God. They were still able to travel in time, but ultimately they were unable to affect the universe itself, and were forced to work through their minions.

God had finally come to the sad conclusion after so many failures that evil would always re-emerge at some point no matter how hard he tried to stamp it out. So he felt it was best to try and find a way to contain it. As twisted as the Black Guardian was, God felt he was a better choice to maintain the natural order than the Anti God, and so he was allowed to remain.

Of course the Black Guardian would still try and disrupt the natural order for his own reasons, but the White Guardian would always find a way to stop him.

Many of God’s warriors that he had created to battle the Anti God, he simply told to try and forge their own way in life now, and many of them did, but others found it difficult without his guidance.

Light in particular almost had a mental breakdown, but eventually he resolved himself to catalogue all of Gods wonderful creatures, thinking that would make his father happy. Many believed that Light never fully recovered however and was always somewhat unstable. Light would construct a spaceship, complete with a living computer to begin exploring the universe. He also took on an un-named alien to help him in his quest, who he granted immortality to.

On the first planet Light came across however, earth, he discovered much to his horror, that his quest would be pointless as all life forms kept evolving and changing. As soon as his catalogue was finished, then he would have to start again. Light had another breakdown and went into hibernation for millions of years. He would later be awoken in the late 19th Century.

The Time Lords

Truly the greatest civilisation of N-Space, the Time Lords were also among the first intelligent species to evolve in N-Space. The Time Lords who were originally known as the Gallifreyans were overall humanoid in appearance, though their home planet named Gallifrey was many times the size of earth. Many life forms evolved on the surface of the planet besides the Gallifreyans, including giant Dinosaur like creatures called Gargantosaurs.

Before the Gallifreyans rose up to become the dominant race, Gallifrey was hostile planet filled with many dangerous predators and competing species, including another hostile race of carnivorous humanoids known only as the Toclafane who preyed on Gallifreyans.

The Gallifreyans had highly advanced healing capabilities, which they evolved to deal with the dangers on their world. Over time these healing powers would eventually refine to the point where the Gallifreyans could regenerate their entire bodies whenever they were mortally wounded, though they could only do this 12 times, and whenever a Time Lord regenerated their body, it would take on a totally different appearance.

The process of regeneration would also alter a Gallifreyan’s outer personality to some extent too, though their core personality and consciousness would always remain the same, and their memories remained intact too.

The Gallifreyans earliest advancements were generally created to protect themselves from the hostile creatures of their own planet, and later the Demons and other monsters of the Anti God who invaded Gallifrey at various points just as they did many worlds.

The Gallifreyans would wage a war with the Toclafane which they were able to win due to their more advanced technology.

However towards the end of the Gallifreyan and Toclafane war, the Toclafane would receive help from one of the Gallifreyan’s greatest enemies in the future. Davros, the evil and mad creator of the Daleks.

At this point the Daleks and the Time Lords had been locked in a cold war for years. Too afraid to launch an all out attack against each other, the Time Lords had already attempted to use the Doctor to change the Daleks history, and now Davros was attempting to do the same to the Time Lords by influencing the Toclafane to help overthrow the Gallifreyans.

Fortunately however the Tenth Doctor was sent back by the Time Lords and was able to stop Davros from changing history.

Unfortunately after the Toclafane were defeated, the Gallifreyans would exterminate them all. This genocide would later be covered up in later legends of the Time Lords.

Indeed by the time of the Doctor, most Time Lords didn’t even believe the Toclafane even existed! They were believed to be nothing more than a bogey man invented to scare children. The Doctor would be horrified to see that his people had carried out genocide against.

After the Toclafane’s extinction, the Gallifreyans would place transduction barriers around their world which prevented any other life forms from entering Gallifrey without their consent. The only creature that would ever manage to break through the force field was King Ghidorah.

Protected from a hostile universe, the Gallifreyans would be free to build a highly advanced and peaceful society, but what would ultimately give them for a short while at least, their dominance over other life forms was the discovery of the secret of time travel.

It was the joint work of the then high president of Gallifrey, Rassilon, and Gallifrey’s then leading scientist, Omega that would unlock the secret of time travel. Omega created a stellar manipulator which enabled him to harness the power of a black hole. Omega hoped to use it to create an unlimited power source for Gallifrey. Sadly however whilst Omega’s work would later allow Rassilon to complete harnessing the star that would later become known as the Eye of Harmony, Omega himself was lost in the initial attempt.

His ship was sucked through the black hole itself, and he was believed dead for many centuries. In truth he survived and continued to exist in the anti matter universe counterpart of N-Space. All alone for thousands of years, Omega would eventually go insane from the solitude and seek vengeance against not only the Gallifreyans, but the rest of creation which he believed had betrayed him.

According to many historical accounts, it is believed that Rassilon may have sabotaged Omega’s vessel as he wanted to be seen as the ultimate figure of his people. Whatever the case Rassilon would always harbor a sense of guilt over what became of Omega.

The Eye of Harmony, a compacted black hole was positioned right in the centre of Gallifrey and would provide the Gallifreyans with an unlimited source of energy to construct time vessels which came to be known as TARDIS’. TARDIS stood for Time and Relative Dimensions in Space.

TARDIS’ could not only travel in time and space, but they also had the power to blend into their surroundings, whilst their interiors would always remain the same size and shape.

The Gallifreyans, who now became known as the Time Lords, at first were mindful of altering their own history, so they made a point not to interfere in the past. Instead they simply used their time travel facilities to explore the universe and catalogue its history.

The Time Lords however would soon be drawn into a conflict with the Great Vampires, when the monsters were able to capture a lone TARDIS and turn its occupant into a Vampire. This Vampire would return to Gallifrey where it would go on to infect more Time Lords, leading to the great Vampire plague of Gallifrey.

The Monsters very nearly destroyed Gallifreyan society. Whole cities were wiped out in trying to stop the spread of the Vampires, who were able to infect even members of the Gallifreyan high council.

Eventually however after plague was contained Rassilon would launch a war against the Great Vampires. The war lasted for over 100 years, during which time billions of Time Lords were slaughtered, but eventually they won out and destroyed the Vampires.

The turning point came when Rassilon invented bow ships which fired massive spears into the Vampires hearts, and Raston Warrior Robots, who could fire spears from their hands, were lightening fast, and could teleport at will over great distances. A single Raston Warrior Robot was capable of slaughtering hundreds of lesser Vampires with minimum effort.

All but two of the Great Vampires were destroyed, their leader and his most vicious soldier, both of whom escaped through a portal to the pocket universe, known as E-Space. The leader would crash land on a primitive planet, where it took control of its three leaders, turning them into lesser Vampires. These Vampires would then enslave it the local population and force them build a rocket which could take their leader back to the stars to conquer more worlds. Fortunately however the renegade Time Lords known as the Doctor and Romana would finally slay the king of the Vampires by sending its own rocket into the beasts heart.

The second Great Vampire meanwhile would have more luck. It landed on an advanced world called Heitia. Once again Romana would encounter the Vampire, and though she stopped it from converting the entire population, the monster would later escape into space and convert other worlds, building up an empire in E-Space, though Romana would later destroy the Great Vampire on her 13th life.

The destruction of the Great Vampires in N-Space coincided with the final defeat and banishment of the Anti God, and afterwards the Time Lords were hailed as heroes across the universe for destroying the Vampires.

Many races began to worship the Time Lords, believing that they came from God himself. Sadly the adulation went to the Time Lord’s heads and they would begin to feel it was their duty to “save” the universe.

The Time Lords would go on to conquer many worlds across the universe and interfere in the histories of many more. They peered into the future of universe and frequently tried to change it to their liking, including wiping out races that they knew would go on to be too dangerous in the future.

No one knows how the history of N-Space would have originally gone had it not been for the Time Lord’s alterations.

Eventually towards the end of his rule Rassilon would come to repent the horrors his people had inflicted on the rest of the universe, and would forbid any Time Lords from interfering in the affairs of other planets again. Believing that they were the most advanced race in all of creation, Rassilon felt that they had a solemn duty not to abuse that power.

Despite this however whilst Rassilon would always be seen a great figure in Time Lord society, he remained a polarising figure throughout the rest of the cosmos. On some planets he was still worshipped as a hero (albeit a flawed hero) for vanquishing the Vampires, whilst on others he was condemned as a monster for his actions during the later years of his rule. Rassilon would spend the last few centuries of his 13th and final life in the tower of Rassilon, secluded in the Death Zone.

The Death Zone was a giant wasteland in the heart of Gallifrey. An area that had once been home to the Time Lord’s mightiest civilisation. It had been destroyed by Rassilon himself after being overrun with Vampires. During the reign of the Time Lords over the rest of the universe, they would transform the ruins of the old city into an arena where they would force life forms they had abducted from all over the universe to fight each other for their own amusement.

The Death Zone for many represented the ultimate corruption of the Time Lords, and of course by the end of Rassilon’s time the Death Zone had been closed to all, and the practice of abducting other life forms was made illegal on Gallifrey.

Rassilon chose the Death Zone as his final place to stay so that he would be reminded of his failure and corruption. He was later buried in his tower in the Death Zone. Rassilon would just before his death however set up “the game of Rassilon” which would supposedly grant whoever completed it immortal life and allow them to rule over Gallifrey forever.

In truth however the game was set up as a trap to lure out other greedy Time Lords who would seek to abuse their power just like he once had, and whilst it would grant them immortal life, it would be as a statue in his tower!

The Time Lords would not always follow Rassilon’s non intervention policy. The Time Lord President Morbius who ruled many centuries later during the reign of King Ghidorah’s attack believed that the Time Lords had to conquer all other life forms to ensure their safety. He argued that if they didn’t, then one race would eventually surpass them. Morbius further argued that the Time Lords would rule benevolently, but that another race might not, so they owed it to other life forms to be their masters.

Many believe that Morbius was simply pushed over the edge by Ghidorah’s attack however.

Morbius would cause a civil war on Gallifrey which would kill more people than any other in the planets history. After Morbius was driven from Gallifrey, he would gather an army of creatures from various planets, who would be referred to as “the scum of the galaxy” and use them to try and conquer the Gallifrey and other worlds before he was finally defeated.

Morbius would be executed on Karn, though it would later be discovered that a student of his from the future, Professor Solon had been able to teleport his brain from his body into a tank, where it would remain preserved for years whilst Solon built his master a new body.

Though Solon was successful, the Doctor (who was from the future,) was sent to investigate by the Celestial Intervention Agency and would succeed in destroying Morbius with the aid of the Sisterhood of Karn before the former President could cause more havoc throughout the universe.

Morbius’ reign of terror finally comes to an end.

The Celestial Intervention Agency meanwhile were a secret order of Time Lords created above and beyond the high council themselves at some point after Morbius’ rule. The CIA would send in secret agents to monitor important events in planets histories to change them for the Time Lords (and the greater universe at large’s) benefit.

The CIA were not desperate to rule any planets like Morbius, or Rassilon had been at his worst. They genuinely believed that their actions were for the greater good of the universe, but they were not above using dubious means to achieve it.

Other than the CIA however most Time Lords would spend their 13 lives on Gallifrey just as Rassilon had wished, though there would be a few renegades from time to time.

Some of these renegades were benevolent, others were villainous, and others simply enjoyed being able to cruise through time and space, sampling the best from various cultures across all of N-Space.

The most famous of all renegade Time Lords however was one who would come to be known as The Doctor.

The 13 regenerations of the renegade Time Lord known as the Doctor.

The Doctor’s early life is shrouded in mystery. Indeed throughout all of his travels no one would ever discover his real name and identity. A few scant details have been discovered about his upbringing and life on Gallifrey, but ultimately much of his past and even who he was is still unknown and will likely always be. The Doctor despite having a massive influence on the history of the universe generally tended to make sure that his presence was not known in the important events he became involved in, and so very few species were even aware he existed.

However many races such as the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Sontarans would come to fear the Doctor, making him a legendary figure in some areas of the cosmos.

It is known that the Doctor was born to a high class family in the Gallifreyan countryside.  He was apparently born 100 or so years after Morbius’ reign as the President. It was a period of great recovery for the Time Lords after their recent hardships, and was later seen as a golden age.

As a boy the Doctor used to play through the long red grass with his siblings. He was apparently a very active and inquisitive child, who would go exploring through the long stretch of countryside outside his parents estate. Much to his parents annoyance, he would frequently get lost in the woods or caves, or get himself into trouble.

Despite being close with his family, the Doctor was according to some accounts a somewhat lonely boy with few friends elsewhere. The Doctors best friend during his childhood was apparently an old and wise Time Lord hermit named K’Nappo who was nearing the end of his regeneration cycle.

K’Nappo had worked for the Celestial Intervention Agency in his prime. He had actually worked for a special branch devoted to tracking down supernatural creatures, such as lesser Vampires and Demons throughout all of time and space.

K’Nappo would frequently tell the young Doctor exciting stories about some of his adventures (though he never told the Doctor how he had heard these stories and he of course embellished them somewhat.)

Still they both excited and terrified the young Time Lord and K’Nappo would go on to have a profound effect on the Doctor in many other areas of his life.

The Doctor would attend the most prestigious Time Lord Academy where he was taught by Borusa, who would eventually go on to become one of the most successful (though controversial) Time Lord Presidents.

Whilst studying at the Academy the Doctor would become friends with another future renegade, who would come to be known as The Master in years to come. The Master and the Doctor bonded over a love of science, and exploration. The two did not buy into the received wisdom among the Time Lords that all life in the universe had been catalogued. They often mocked the high council of the Time Lords as being stuffy, and old fashioned, and sought to prove them wrong. The Doctor of course didn’t admit to anyone, not the Master or his family, but he really wanted to explore the universe and find out if the Time Lords really knew everything.

Such an idea would have seemed suicidal to defy the Time Lords, but the Doctor always harboured it as a secret ambition. Little did the Doctor know that his friend the Masters ambitions were far greater!

Ultimately the Doctor and the Master would soon drift apart after leaving the Academy.

The first known picture of the Doctor during his youth.

After leaving the academy the Doctor would later marry and have children. Not much is known about his family life, but tragically at some point his family were killed in a disaster (caused by the eye of harmony malfunctioning, though no one knew it at the time) which struck the Gallifreyan city they lived in.

The Doctor would be forced to take in his only grand daughter, Susan, then just an infant and would look after her for most of the rest of his first incarnations life.

At some point after his family’s death the Doctor decided to finally fulfil his life long ambition to explore the universe. He had of course put this dream aside to look after his family throughout most of his first incarnation’s life. Now however that they were gone and there wasn’t really anything else tying him to Gallifrey, the Doctor with Susan’s help stole an old, obsolete, type 40 TARDIS and began exploring the Universe.

He knew that doing so meant he could never return to Gallifrey as he would now be a renegade, but again as there was nothing tying him back to Gallifrey, neither the Doctor nor Susan cared. The Doctor also stole two powerful Time Lord artifacts before leaving. The Hand of Omega, and the Nemesis statue, both of which he stole simply as an insurance in case the Time Lords came after him.

The Doctor in his second incarnation remembers the family he lost fondly whilst helping his companion Victoria through a similar loss.

The Doctor was relatively old when he first left Gallifrey, and initially he simply sought to explore.

As time went on however the Doctor would soon become involved in the affairs of many planets, including most notably Earth, which he developed an extreme fondness for.

In time the Doctor would go on to become one of N-Space’s greatest champions and defenders, battling various monsters throughout all of time and space such as the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Sontarans.

The Doctor would eventually separate from Susan, after the two helped to save humanity from the Daleks in the 22nd century. Susan decided to remain on earth with David Campbell a Dalek resistance fighter that she had fallen in love with. Susan would in turn go on to be a highly influential figure in earth society too, helping to rebuild humanity after the Dalek invasion. She would also have two children, John and Gillian who the Doctor would later travel with for years.

The Doctor would go on to take on various other companions to assist him in his battles against evil from various other planets, though they would most frequently be from earth. They were usually young women, being in many respects surrogate replacement figures for Susan.

Despite the dangerous lifestyle he led, the Doctor did manage to live through all 13 of his regenerations. They were as follows.

1st Doctor

Image result for William Hartnell

The Doctors original form, the First Doctor was originally just an explorer and like many Time Lords, he was somewhat arrogant and condescending to other life forms that he met (in particular human beings) who he regarded as beneath him.

Still as time went on the Doctor would mellow out, thanks in no small part to the influence of his companions, namely Susan and Ian and Barbara, the first two humans ever to travel with the Time Lord. By the end of his “life” the Doctor had become a genuinely heroic figure, risking his life to defeat enemies such as the Daleks (who he battled many times.)

Nevertheless this Doctor always remained a somewhat grumpy, bad tempered individual, though he would always keep a level head in a crisis, a trait which carried on to future incarnations. He was also ruthless in dealing with his enemies, and was more than willing to kill, but only if he had to.

Though old and frail in appearance, the Doctor was as tough as an old turkey and a dangerous enemy to his adversaries.

This Doctor travelled initially with Susan, and Ian and Barbara, two school teachers from 1960s London. The Doctor abducted them after they stumbled into his TARDIS by mistake. After Susan left, the Doctor would travel with Vicki, a young orphan girl from the 23rd century. He would also travel with Steven Taylor an astronaut from the far future, Katarina, a former Trojan slave girl, Sara Kingdom, a member of the special space security service from earth’s future, Dorothea Chaplet, a young girl from 1960s London, and John and Gillian, his two great grandchildren, who were sent to him by Susan to protect them from the Daleks in the future.

The First Doctors final two companions were a young couple from 1960s London, Ben and Polly, who would also be the first to witness the Doctor regenerate.

The First Doctors greatest enemies were the Daleks. He had many dealings with them, including facing the monsters on their home planet of Skaro, where he prevented them from destroying the Thals, during their invasion of earth in the 22nd century, and in their attempts to construct the Time Destructor, a super weapon capable of ageing planets into nothing but dust. The Daleks would of course go on to become the greatest enemies of the Doctor overall, being one of his few many enemies to face him in every single incarnation.

Aside from the Daleks, this incarnation also faced foes such as the Meddling Monk and the Celestial Toymaker, as well as the Cybermen who were responsible for his first regeneration.

2nd Doctor

Image result for 2nd doctor

Somewhat more easy going and laid back than his grumpy predecessors, the Second Doctor was also a lot more manipulative and crafty. He would often feign helplessness and incompetence to lure his enemies into a false sense of security.

He was every bit as willing to kill his enemies, and in some ways was actually more ruthless than the first Doctor, as he was shown to be willing to wipe out entire species, including the Daleks and the Cybermen.

Still overall this Doctor had a much more compassionate personality overall, and began to devote himself to battling evil more than the first.

This Doctor tended to wear clothes that were too big for him and had a somewhat more shambolic appearance. He also had a greater fondness for music, and enjoyed playing on his recorder.

In the later years of his life this incarnation of the Doctor would be forced to work for the Celestial Intervention Agency to avoid punishment from the High Council of the Time Lords. However they would later hand him over to the High Council when he proved to be too difficult to control.

This Doctor inherited Ben and Polly from the first, and would later pick up the Jacobite, Jamie McCrimmon. Jamie would go on to become one of the Doctors best friends, and stay with him throughout his early travels, until the Time Lords would force Jamie to return to earth. The two would later reunite however in 1960s London.

The Doctor also travelled with Victoria who he developed a very close fatherly relationship with, after her father had been killed by the Daleks, and Zoe, a young, brilliant scientist from earth’s future. During his days with the Celestial Intervention Agency he would also resume travelling with John and Gillian too.

This Doctors most recurring enemies where the Cybermen who he faced many times. He also fought the Great Intelligence, the Ice Warriors and of course the Daleks multiple times too.

3rd Doctor

Image result for 3rd Doctor

This Doctor was exiled to earth by the Time Lords after they successfully captured him in his second incarnation. The Time Lords accepted that the Doctor had his place in the battle against evil, but not wanting a renegade to go unpunished, they not only forced a regeneration, but forced him to remain on the earth in the early 70s for a period of time. (They also exiled him to earth as they had foreseen a great time of catastrophe for the planet that only he could deal with.)

The Doctor would remain on earth for many years, during which time he worked with UNIT. More violent than his previous two incarnations, this Doctor was very charismatic, dashing and brave. Instantly commanding an air of authority wherever he went, the Doctor also had a taste for theatrics and didn’t suffer fools gladly.

It was during this time that the Doctor would encounter his old former friend the Master who would go on to be his single greatest enemy.

The Doctors exile would eventually be lifted near the end of his third incarnations life, when he (along with his first and second incarnations) defeated Omega who attempted to get his revenge on the rest of the universe by unleashing anti matter from his prison into it.

Even when his exile was lifted however, the Third Doctor would still spend much of his time on earth, having developed a greater fondness for it than his predecessors.

The Third Doctor primarily worked alongside Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart whilst he was exiled to earth. Though their relationship was tense at first, the two soon became best friends, and indeed the Doctor would go on to meet the Brigadier in every incarnation.

Aside from the Brigadier, this Doctor also worked alongside the scientist Liz Shaw, during his exile on earth. He would also work with Jo Grant and investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith, both of whom would travel with him at different points, once his exile was lifted.

This Doctor’s main enemy was the first incarnation of the Master, though he also faced the Daleks many times too. He also faced such enemies as the Sontarans, the Silurians, the Autons and the Sea Devils.

4th Doctor

Image result for 4th doctor

A more eccentric and outwardly alien incarnation than his immediate predecessor, though just as charismatic, dashing and commanding. This Doctor was desperate to begin exploring time and space again.

Arguably the most ruthless of all Doctors in dealing with his enemies. This incarnation nevertheless developed a closer bond to his companions than any previous version. He could also be somewhat childish and petulant however. This Doctor had a real love for Jelly babies, a trait which ran through other incarnations, but was strongest with the Fourth Doctor.

Much like the First Doctor he seemed more interested in exploring the universe than in being a hero. He was often forced into helping out by some higher power, including both the Time Lords and the White Guardian himself.

Still despite this he was just as brave and noble as his predecessors and ironically was involved in some of the Doctors biggest battles including stopping Sutekh the destroyer from escaping, and preventing the Black Guardian from assembling the Key to Time.

This Doctor travelled with Sarah Jane Smith, Leela, a savage warrior woman from a far flung earth colony, the Time Lady Romana, Adric, a stowaway during the Doctors brief visit to E-Space, and Nyssa the last survivor of the planet Traken.

This Doctors two main adversaries were the Master and Davros, though he also faced other old foes such as the Cybermen and the Sontarans.

5th Doctor

Image result for 5th Doctor

A more sensitive and vulnerable Doctor, the 5th Doctor had a love for cricket and was somewhat more energetic than previous versions.

He was every bit as cunning as previous incarnations, though he tended to feel the suffering of those around him more and at times could let it overwhelm him. Still whenever his companions or loved ones were threatened he wouldn’t hesitate to kill an enemy.

He travelled with Adric (who was sadly killed by the Cybermen, being the first companion the Doctor had lost in many centuries. Adric’s death would have a huge effect on the Doctor.) Nyssa, Teegan (an Australian air hostess), Turlough an alien minion of the Black Guardian, who eventually turned on his former master, and Peri Brown, a young American woman from the 80s.

The Fifth Doctors most recurring adversaries meanwhile were the Tremas incarnation of the Master, the Cybermen, the Demonic entity known as the Mara, and the Black Guardian.

6th Doctor

Image result for 6th doctor

A more unstable incarnation due to the traumatic circumstances of the 5th Doctors regeneration. Many believe that the 6th Doctor never truly stabilised. Whilst all of the Doctors were willing to kill, the 6th Doctor seemed somewhat more excessively violent than many other incarnations. Dressed in garish clothes, he was rude, egotistical and obnoxious to almost everyone he came into contact with, even his friends and companions. Many around him found it difficult to like the 6th Doctor at first, but as time went on, deep down he proved ironically to be one of the most heroic and caring Doctors, often using his bluster to throw people off his real intentions.

The 6th Doctor reacts with disgust to his people’s actions.

The 6th Doctor would travel with Peri the longest, and later Melanie Bush.

His main foes were Davros, the Daleks, the demented and sadistic Sil, and the Valeyard an evil version of the Doctor created during his 12th and 13th incarnations.

7th Doctor

Image result for 7th doctor

Initially a more clownish and light hearted incarnation, the 7th Doctor soon revealed himself to be a darker, manipulative and ruthless individual than other incarnations. Desperate to make up for what he felt were past mistakes, this Doctor was fond of using people around him like pieces on a chess board.

Much like his second incarnation, this Doctor was shown to be willing to wipe out entire species for the greater good, and attempted to finish his archenemies, the Master and Davros for good.

The 7th Doctor would travel with Mel, Ace, a teenager from 80s London, and Rona, a cat burglar from the 60s.

His archenemy was Fenric, an ancient and powerful Demonic child of the Anti God.

8th Doctor

Image result for 8th Doctor

Much like the 5th Doctor, the 8th incarnation of the Time Lord was a more sensitive and caring soul. Somewhat shaken by how ruthless he had become in his 7th persona, the 8th Doctor a somewhat byronesque, dashing figure who tried to show compassion to some of his worst enemies.

The 8th Doctor would travel with the self styled Edwardian adventuress Charley, an alien named Distrii, humans from the 20th century, Lucie and Sam, and a man from the 25th century named James who sadly became the host for the Master.

He also towards the end of his life travelled with the hologram known as Ace Rimmer, and the outlaw from the 23rd century, Kerr Avon.

His archenemy was the James incarnation of the Master.

9th Doctor

Image result for Dylan Moran

A somewhat more sardonic, sarcastic, and grumpy Doctor than his immediate predecessor. This Doctor was a somewhat bitter individual at first. He was resentful that no matter how hard he tried, so many of his worst enemies, such as the Daleks, the Master and the Cybermen still persisted.

He was also bitter at the Time Lords for frequently putting so much responsibility on his shoulders, whilst never accepting any of their own and generally tended to shun all other members of his kind to an even greater extent.

Despite this however this Doctor was fiercely protective of his companions, and had a somewhat greater artistic flair than many of his predecessors.

The 9th Doctors 3 main companions were Dana, a young woman from the 90s whose little sister had been abducted by aliens when she was young, and who would travel with the Doctor to try and find her. She would ultimately be successful in doing so. Jaime, a young woman from the 14th Century, whose family had been killed by the plague. And finally a 3000 model android woman from the future named Lenia.

His archenemies were the Daleks, and the Zystregia, a race of monsters who originated from within a white hole and could control time to a certain extent.

10th Doctor

Image result for tim curry clue

The Doctors longest lived incarnation. This Doctor was the most outwardly friendly and kindest of all his incarnations. He was a very eccentric, happy, and energetic individual who lived his life to the fullest.

Knowing that he was nearing the end of his regeneration cycle, this Doctor was determined to enjoy his life above all else. He loved collecting and preserving pieces of art, music and literature that would have otherwise been lost to time.

He was also a great trencherman and enjoyed sampling the best food from across all of time and space. He didn’t mind putting on weight as he would just regenerate into a skinnier body at a later date.

Whilst doing his best to enjoy his life, this Doctor still retained his strong sense of injustice, and despite his kind, compassionate nature to his friends, was extremely ruthless in dealing with his enemies. He never saw himself as ruthless however. Simply as practical.

This Doctor inherited Lenia from the 9th Doctor, though as the longest lived incarnation he had by far and away the most companions.

Among the Tenth Doctor’s other companions included Alison, a great scientist from the 31st century who wanted to explore other times (finding her own era where everything had seemingly been discovered rather boring.) Enesta, a Comanche woman from the 13th century, Jasmine, a woman from the 20th century who had been experimented on by the Daleks as a young girl. Lindsey Kate, a young woman from the 21st century who had become lost in another universe through a rip between realities whilst exploring Europe, only to be rescued by the Doctor. Lindsey loved traveling, and so was only too happy to join the Doctor on his travels.

Another of the Tenth Doctors most notable companions was Doctor Sarah Page, a woman from another universe, I-Space who had been trapped in her earth’s future.

In I-Space’s version of earth, anomalies opened up in time and space which allowed creatures to pass through from one time to the next. Sarah had been part of a team in the 21st century to try and contain these anomalies, known as the ARC. She had been presumed dead on a dangerous mission into the future, where she was attacked by a savage, mutated predator.

In truth however she survived, albeit she was badly wounded. She would later found by the Doctor who helped her recover, and then took her on as his companion for many years, before she would come to settle in the 31st century of N-Space.

The Tenth Doctor would also travel with Elena, the daughter of his old friends, Philip J Fry and Turanga Leela. Elena had taken after her father (and uncle Bender) in that she was more of a slacker and lazy growing up, but over the course of her travels with the Doctor she would greatly mature and become a great hero like her parents. She would also meet her husband on her journey’s with the Doctor. Her future husband named Yarox came from trillions of years in the future, when humanity was struggling to survive, and believed that they might very well be the last life forms left in the universe. Yarox joined the Doctor to see the universe when it was young and thriving, as well as visit the planet his ancestors came from.

He and Elena would eventually stop travelling with the Doctor when Elena became pregnant and they would be returned to her time in the 31st century. The Doctor would attend their wedding, though he and Bender often argued over who the godfather of Elena’s child was.

Bender wasn’t as good a role model for Elena as the Doctor would later be. (Note: From a real world perspective, this drawing was done by Spider-Matt on Deviant Art. Check out his stuff its great.) 

The Tenth Doctor would also take on a young woman from the boxer rebellion named Tsin Tu and a soldier from the first world war named Harrison as his companions, as well as a former 1960s model named Lucy and and later a young man named Baxter from the 19th century who the Doctor rescued from the satanic mills.

The Daleks and the Master were the main enemies of this Doctor. It was during this Doctors time that the Daleks would first become a major enemy of the Doctors people, the Time Lords.

11th Doctor

Image result for Robert Carlyle

A deadly serious incarnation who was considered to be the most humorless version of the Doctor.

His hatred of the Master was greater than in previous incarnations due to the villains slaughter of the Doctors latest companions at the end of his 10th life.

Aside from the Master this Doctor’s archenemies were the Keslex and the Devourer. The Keslex were an intergalactic criminal organisation. They were made up of the worst criminals from various planets across all of time and space, as well as the remnants of various empires. They came to view the Doctor as potentially a threat to their activities as well as other Celestial Intervention agents, whom they hunted down and killed. They even kept heads of various CIA agents as trophies, and hoped to add the 11th Doctor to their collection.

The Devourer meanwhile was a disembodied spirit. Created by the Anti God himself, it was similar to the Great Intelligence and the Nestenes. The Devourer however had no other motives except to eat. It always preferred its prey to be alive however.

The Devourer had the power to possess dead bodies, and it would travel from world to world slowly taking over the dead and using them to wipe out the dominant species. The monster would plague the 11th Doctor many times, and even be responsible for his reegeneration.

Whilst the 11th Doctor may have seemed a strong, at times even violent and dangerous hero. Underneath he was quite vulnerable as he worried that his entire life had been worthless, as no matter how hard he tried, innocent people would always die.

This Doctor traveled with Amber, a firey flame haired woman from 60s Glasgow (who would be his longest serving companion.) Leona Oliver, a noble woman whose family had been slaughtered after the battle of 1066 (both of these young women traveled with the Doctor at the same time.)

Amber, the 11th Doctor’s longest serving companion.

The Doctor also traveled with Farah a young woman from Haiti in the 21st century, and later Emilia, a young student from the 21st century.

12th Doctor

Related image

A somewhat more pessimistic, and brooding incarnation of the Doctor. The 12th Doctor having lived through so much loss was quite nihilistic in many of his views and came across as quite cold and unfeeling to those around him.

This Doctor was nevertheless more confident than his immediate previous incarnation, though despite this he did still treat his companions opinions with respect. This Doctor appeared to be more disassociated from the earth however. He was still fond of humans, but he felt that he had spent too much time on the one planet and aimed to rectify this by discovering as many worlds as he could.

The 12th Doctor initially traveled with Emilia, but he would later pick up new companions, mostly from other worlds, though he did travel with an aged Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart from the late 90s.

One of the most notable companions was Mariala, the daughter of the Doctors archfoe, the Master (who would later suffer a tragic death at her fathers hands.) He also traveled with Iseia, who belonged to one of the first races ever to evolve in N-Space. Her race were certainly the first race to expand into space and helped to elevate other species. Sadly they would be wiped out after a several thousand year history by the Great Vampires. Iseia was devastated to see that nothing remained of her people in the future and would fall into a deep depression, before finally settling on the world of Askeria. After saving it from the Cybermen, Iseia hoped she could help its people recover and ensure that her people’s legacy would live on through them.

The 12th Doctors archenemies were the Cybermen, who he faced more than any other incarnation, and the hideous interdimensional beasts known as the Crevals.

13th Doctor

Image result for Julian Richings

The final incarnation of the Doctor. The 13th Doctor was a wise, dignified figure who didn’t suffer fools gladly. Similar in some respects to the First Doctor, many including the Doctors granddaughter Susan felt he had come full circle.

Having accepted his place in the universe, this Doctor in contrast to his predecessor had a more positive outlook and was proud of all the things he had accomplished and accepted that some evils would always remain in the universe, but there would always be people to fight it.

Nevertheless despite this he also finally succeeded in destroying his two greatest enemies, Davros and the Master.

This Doctor would finally meet his end when battling against his oldest and deadliest enemies, the Daleks. The 13th Doctor died stopping the Daleks from unleashing a weapon that would have destroyed all of time itself.

The Doctor was buried on Gallifrey, with statues of all 13 of his incarnations being erected in his honor. The eulogy to his funeral would be read by the Twelfth incarnation of Romana.

The Doctor would only celebrated on Gallifrey as a hero after his death. Until then so as not to inspire any more renegades the Doctors heroic actions in saving Gallifrey against the likes of Omega and the Master, were generally concealed.

The 13th Doctors archenemies were the Daleks, who were at their most dangerous during his time, as well as the final incarnation of the Master (who possessed the body of his great grandson John.)

The 13th Doctors companions meanwhile consisted of a former UNIT soldier who had been dishonorably discharged named Brian, an early human colonist from Mars named Roberta, Journey Blue, a Dalek resistance fighter from the future, and Cosarkia, a Time Lady, and renegade member of the Celestial Intervention Agency who wished to make amends and who would be his final companion.

After the Doctor, the most famous renegade the Time Lord race ever produced was The Master.

Just as with the Doctor, much of the Masters early life is shrouded in mystery. It is known that he and the Doctor were at one point friends and that they went to the same Time Lord Academy together. The two quickly drifted apart after leaving the Academy however.

The Master is believed to have left Gallifrey long before the Doctor. His true name was never revealed, though some believed it was Koschei, others suspect this was just another alias.

The first incarnation of the Master.

The Master initially did not set out to be a villain. The Master believed that the Time Lords, as the most advanced race in the universe had a duty to help other races across the cosmos. Of course he believed that the Time Lords would need to rule other races in order to fix their problems. The Master didn’t see it as ruling however. More guiding lesser races to their true potential.

Since the Time Lords refused to interfere, the Master decided that he would be the one to guide lesser races. The Master at least at first did genuinely believe that he was doing good in the universe, and indeed for many centuries he would. Ultimately however underneath his seemingly altruistic facade, the Master, deep down was a megalomaniac. He was a weak, scared little man, who craved power because it was the only way he felt safe and strong.

The first planet the Master took over was the planet of Majos. The Majosians had themselves been invaded by a hostile race of aliens, known as the Raskors. The Raskors were not a great power like the Daleks or the Cybermen, but they were more advanced than the Majosians and ruled them for over 5 centuries, that is until the Master easily overthrew the Raskors.

Naturally he was celebrated as a hero by the Majosians and the Master would soon build them up to being a great society. With his advanced intellect he was able to cure all diseases on their planet, both physical and mental, and bring equality between all of their different races too. Of course the fact that he had been able to unite their people against a common enemy helped. Still even after the Majosians had been defeated, the Master was still able to keep them all united, and quickly eliminated other problems plaguing their world such as crime, poverty and inequality. Overall the Master was able to build the Majosians up to being the most advanced race in their galaxy in a matter of decades!

Over 100 years of peace would reign on their world, and the Master was worshipped as the greatest hero their people had ever seen. Sadly however the Master would later lead them down a dark path. He hoped to use the Majosians as his army to conquer other planets across the galaxy. He convinced the Majosians that what they were doing was for the good of all, as ultimately when they ruled these other worlds, they would fix their problems just as the Master had fixed theirs.

The Master would go on to conquer many worlds with the Majosians help. He ruled over a large empire for many decades, but eventually the Majosians empire would collapse and its people fell into a state of anarchy. The Master blamed the Majosians themselves for being a weak race, and would abandon them to the many vengeful species they had conquered, but who had now managed to overrun them. The Majosians entire planet was laid waste and the few survivors of their race, on their now barren, dead world, would come to curse the Master, viewing him as a Demon who tempted them to darkness and destroyed their race.

After the failure of the Majosians, the Master would seek to make a new planet the centre of his perfect empire. Much like the Doctor, he had developed a particular fondness for earth, and believed that humanity had the potential to be the race who would help him rule the universe.

The Master would become even more interested in earth when he learned that his old friend, the Doctor was exiled there. The Doctors reputation as a renegade had begun to outshine the Masters in some corners of the galaxy, despite his best attempts to keep hidden. The Master was desperate to prove he was superior, and the villain also loved a challenge, so he hoped he could conquer the earth when the Doctor was there. The fact that the Doctor had been placed on earth by the Time Lords themselves to protect it just made the challenge all the more exciting for the Master.

The Master was ultimately foiled in his first attempt to take over the earth (with the aid of the Nestene consciousness( by the Third Doctor, but the two would have many more battles with each other for the fate of humanity. Though the Doctor was always able to foil the Masters plans to conquer humanity, the Doctor was never able to finish the villain for good which he wanted to many times. The Master would always go free, leaving a huge body count behind him.

The Master claimed that all of the evil he did was a regrettable necessity as ultimately when he ruled things would be better. However there were times even in his first incarnation where his cruelty was clearly for no reason other than petty vengeance or sadism, such as when he attempted to provoke a war between the Sea Devils and humanity just to spite the Doctor, who was fond of both races.

The Master initially believed that the Doctor, being another renegade who had been mistreated by the Time Lords could perhaps become a potential ally and help him shape earth’s history for the better, but the Doctor refused to help him, and the two eventually despite having once been friends, became the bitterest of enemies. The Master would become utterly obsessed with not just destroying the Doctor, but making him suffer and proving his superiority.

The First Master would ultimately be responsible for selling his people’s secrets out to the Daleks. The monsters had successfully captured the villain whilst ironically looking for the Doctor himself. The Master was able to buy his life however, by supplying the Daleks with Time Lord technology and information about their race. He also even attempted to provoke a war between the earth and Draconian empires to aid the Daleks. When this plan failed thanks to the Doctors influence, the Daleks would attempt to destroy the Master, and though he managed to escape, the Daleks dispatched a time vessel to pursue him throughout all of history.

The Master would settle on the planet Terserious, where he planned to create a weapon that could allow him to destroy the Daleks once and for all. Unfortunately the monsters were able to infiltrate his base and in the resulting struggle the Masters weapon went off, destroying all life on the planet, except for the Master himself, who survived, thanks to his Time Lord powers of regeneration.

The Master however was aged through all 13 of his incarnations as a result of the blast and left in a hideous, burned, emaciated form.

The Master in his second/13th body.

The Master was pushed over the edge in this form, and became even more obsessed with destroying the Doctor who he blamed for all of his misfortunes. The Master at one point even claimed that only his hatred of the Doctor kept him alive in the state of perpetual agony he was now in.

The Master was eventually able to postpone his life by transplanting his consciousness into the body of a man named Tremas. In Tremas’ body, the Master would continue to plague the Doctor for many years to come. He even succeeded in killing the 4th Doctor.

The Master still desired power, but by this point he dropped any facade that it was for a greater good, and was a more flamboyantly sadistic villain.

The Master in Tremas’ body on the planet of the Cheetah people.

The Time Lord would only further be dragged into madness when he was infected with the Cheetah virus that brought out all of his dark and twisted urges to the fore.

Following this the Master would later be captured by the Daleks a second time who vaporised his Tremas body. However his mind survived as a disembodied spirit and would later take control of a human male named Bruce (after escaping Skaro in the Doctors TARDIS when the Doctor came to collect his remains for burial back on Gallifrey. The Masters consciousness would force the Doctors TARDIS to land on earth before he took over Bruce’s body.)

The Master in Bruce’s body.

In this body the Master would attempt to steal the Doctors remaining regenerations (the Doctor was on his 8th body) but the villain was subsequently sucked into the core of the TARDIS itself, destroying his new body.

His consciousness would survive however and would later possess the Doctors TARDIS. The Master would use the Doctors TARDIS to torture him and and his companions, before trying to take over the Doctors body. Ultimately however the Master instead was only able to take over one of the Doctors companions. A human named James who came from the 27th century.

The Master in James’ body. 

After taking over James’ body, the Master would escape the TARDIS, using its power to deposit himself across time and space to a primitive world called Lasorik that he had developed an interest in on his travels, much like earth.

The Master would take over this planet and turn the Lasoriks into his soldiers, just like he had done with Majorians. The Lasoriks however had always been a race of pitiless conquerors, but they had been defeated by an alliance of planets. Thanks to the Masters actions they would rise up and become a major power in the Galaxy yet again. The Master would frequently return to them when he needed more help.

The Master knew that he couldn’t possibly hope for one empire to spread over the universe, and so he instead attempted to create various empires, all of which would be loyal to him. He succeeded in creating other small empires, though none of them as large as the Lasoriks, save for a new and improved race of Daleks that he created, (with the aid of Zolfian and Yarvelling, but more on that later.)

As time went on the villain would be forced to steal more bodies to prolong his own miserable existence. The next body the Master would steal would be that of a former soldier from the far future when humanity was at war with a hostile race of robots. The Master promised the soldier whose entire life had been taken up with the war, that he could defeat the robots and save humanity if he let the Master possess him.

The Master did keep his word and helped humanity, but only so that he could make them his army, and for years in the soldiers body he was hailed as a hero and very nearly convinced humanity to conquer other worlds, by convincing them it was the only way they could ever be safe from invasion again. Fortunately however the Doctor foiled his plans, but this Master in this body would still be celebrated as one of earth’s greatest heroes for saving humanity for centuries to come.

The Master would later steal would be the body of another time lord, a member of the Celestial Intervention agency who he successfully lured into a trap.

In this form the Master would gain access to all of the CIA’s secrets and became a much more dangerous adversary than ever before. He very nearly succeeded in erasing the Doctor from history and fixing his own timeline to the way he wanted it where he ruled over a Time Lord empire, but he was defeated and his actions undone by the Tenth Doctor and 12th Romana.

The Master in the body of the CIA Time Lord.

This Master would be responsible for the death of his daughter Marilia. During the later years of his rule over Majosia, the Master in order to gain support among the masses married a Majosian woman. Despite all he had done for them, the Masters support was depleting at that point due to their empire falling. The Master did not care about his wife or their daughter at all. They were simply a means to an end, and when the empire fell, the Master abandoned them both to their fate.

Marilia survived however. She came to believe her fathers lies that he told her just before leaving, that the Majosians had become corrupted and that he had to leave in order to protect her.

She came to believe her father would return to her people one day and save them. Marilia would live much longer due to her time lord heritage, and would eventually succeed in taking over her people. With her much greater intellect, she was able to create a vastly powerful weapon that could strike back at the aliens they used to rule. The aliens had eventually stopped attacking Majosia, but sadly after taking them over, Marillia was desperate to launch a new war against them.

The Master and the Doctor would arrive on Majosia by accident, but when the Master saw his daughter in charge, he attempted to manipulate her into rebuilding his former empire.

The Doctor however would later convince Marilia to turn against the Master, rather than start a pointless war.

Sadly the Master in order to survive soon reprogrammed the weapon to destroy Majosia. Despite the Doctors best efforts, he was unable to shut it down and the planet was consumed in the fire (as were thousands of other worlds.) The Doctor was able to get Marilia to safety in the TARDIS. She begged him to take her on so she could make amends and get revenge on her father.

The Doctor was unsure, but ultimately agreed, and she would become one of his longest serving and most loyal companions. Sadly in a later battle with her father she would sacrifice herself in order to save the Doctor. The Master did not care about her death at all. He viewed her as nothing more than a burden and a disappointment to him.

The Doctor meanwhile would greatly mourn her death which would only increased his hatred of the Master.

The two’s feud would reach new levels however when the Master killed the Doctors great grandson, John.

The Master succeeded in kidnapping both of the Doctors great grandchildren, John and Gillian in an attempt to lure his nemesis into a trap. With Susan’s help however the Doctor managed to save Gillian, and mortally wounded the Master with a weapon that deterred his new body’s ability to regenerate. Unfortunately however the Master, who still had John as his prisoner, would transplant his consciousness into John’s body, taking it over, and destroying John’s mind instantly.

The Master in John’s body. It was to be the final body he would take over.

The Doctor would in turn become utterly obsessed with destroying the Master. The Master did not fear the Doctor however, and would often taunt him over the fact that eventually the Doctor would run out of regenerations, whilst the Master would continue to steal bodies.

The 13th and final Doctor would eventually destroy the Master for good however. The two’s final battle happened on the planet Melessario in the far future near the end of N-Space.

By this stage only a handful of life forms existed in the universe including humanity. Desperately clinging to life as their galaxy, and all of those around them had burned away.  The Master converted Melessario into a sanctuary that would be safe from the death of N-Space.

Thanks to technology he had stolen from the Time Lords, and various other worlds throughout his travels across all of time, the Master was able to make Melessario out of sync with the rest of the universe.

He was also able to place a transduction barrier around the planet, just like Gallifrey, and place a dying star at the center of the world, just like the eye of harmony which gave the planet a virtually limitless supply of energy.

Melessario was a paradise, but the Master would only allow life forms to live on it, if they swore allegiance to him. The Master hoped to build an army made up from the ultimate survivors. For so long the Master had tried to build an empire from a race he believed to have potential only to be disappointed when they weren’t as powerful or resourceful as he had hoped. In fact almost all of the empire’s he had built over the centuries had crumbled sooner or later.

The Master decided that he would let the universe choose the most resourceful species for him, and so he went to almost the very end of the universe’s history to see which species had survived for the longest.

The Master hoped to unite them all as his army on Melessario, after which they would then wait until this universe finally burned itself out, with the Master believing that his technology would allow Melessario to survive even the death of the universe itself.

The Masters army would then re-emerge into the new universe where they would conquer it and be the dominant power throughout its history. They would then using the Masters technology survive the death of the next universe, and go on to conquer the next one and so on, and so on, effectively becoming the dominant force throughout all of eternity.

The Master after seeing that the universe would finish did not want to merely create an empire that would eventually crumble into dust like everything else. Instead he wanted to create an empire that would persist for all eternity, shaping each universe in his own twisted vision.

(Of course little did the Master know that N-Space would simply repeat itself forever.)

The 13th Doctor would attempt to stop the Master’s plans by convincing his archfoe’s new people to turn on him.

Many of the last life forms of N-Space (which included the last of humanity) had come to see the Master as a god, as he had not only succeeded in protecting them, but had promised them that they would be masters of the next universe

The Master was still a cruel leader however, forcing many of his subjects to regularly undergo trials and tests to make them better warriors for his conquest of the next version of N-Space. Those who failed were banished to outside the safety of Melessario to die. The Master also performed horrific experiments on many of his subjects to ensure that they would be more powerful too, which killed millions.

Many of the Masters subjects were perfectly happy to go through his trials, as they had come to believe his ideas of them being the chosen races to rule the universe and wanted to prove themselves.

Still fortunately there were resistance groups who hoped to overthrow the Master and simply live on Melessario in peace. With their help, the 13th Doctor would finally defeat his old nemesis.

The Doctor finally killed the Master by using his own technology to send his arch foe back into the dying N-Space.  The Doctor didn’t actually see him die, but he always considered this to be the final end of his former friend, turned enemy and there are no records of the Master after this. Unfortunately however the Master, not wanting his world to go on without him, programmed the same technology which protected Melessario to destroy it if anything happened to him.

Whilst the various life forms fled, the Doctor was able to shut down the self destruct device and saved Melessario. Unfortunately however much of the Masters technology was still lost in the explosion. The planet would not be able to survive the death of N-Space now, but the forcefield would still protect the planet from the dying universe for many millions of years to come. The last life forms of N-Space, including the last of humanity would continue to live on Melessario until the end of N-Space (or rather this version of it.)

Sadly they never encountered the Mesrak’s as the forcefield also hid the planet from the rest of the universe.

The Masters criminal activities on earth in the 70s were covered up for years, but after the Cyber invasion in 1986 when aliens were made public knowledge, the Masters activities were made public and this short was broadcast in the year 1993 to fully alert the population. 

Another famous renegade Time Lord, or rather Time Lady was Romana.

Romana was originally sent by the High Council to help the Doctor find the pieces of the Key to Time. The two were successful, but Romana would stay with the Doctor and regenerate along the way.

The two’s relationship became very close and intense, with Romana becoming arguably the Doctors best friend throughout all of his lives alongside Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart.

Eventually however Romana would leave the Doctor to go exploring E-Space, a universe adjacent to N-Space (that is also reborn over and over again.) Romana would go on to become the greatest hero and champion of E-Space. Occasionally however Romana would return to N-Space to help the Doctor or deal with some other threat too. Romana was able to explore E-Space by growing her own TARDIS from a piece of the Doctors TARDIS, that she had stolen whilst journeying with him.

Romana’s own TARDIS could change its outer shape unlike the Doctors, and was a lot more well behaved and predictable than the Doctors.

Just like the Doctor, Romana despite also living a fairly dangerous life, still managed to live throughout all 13 of her incarnations.

1st Romana

Image result for romana 1 doctor who

Romana came from a fairly privileged background on Gallifrey. From the beginning she showed a natural aptitude towards science and technology. Her family expected great things for her, and she was the golden girl at the most prestigious Time Lord Academy.

However much like the Doctor before her, Romana grew bored of Gallifrey. She felt that there was nothing new on the planet to study and instead wanted to learn about other life forms and cultures.

Noting her interest, the Celestial Intervention Agency assigned Romana to assist the Doctor in obtaining the segments of the Key to Time before the Black Guardians agents were able to.

As a result of her upbringing the first Romana was somewhat condescending, arrogant and full of herself. At times her technical knowledge did surpass even the Doctors (something which she always enjoyed rubbing in.) However the first Romana was naturally somewhat naive and inexperienced, such as when she almost fell for the Black Guardian’s deception.

Still from the beginning she proved to be a brave and resourceful hero and she and the Doctor were ultimately successful in stopping the Black Guardian and saving the universe. Whilst she and the Doctor had a positive working relationship from the start, the first Romana’s serious and stern demeanor sometimes clashed with the 4th Doctors more carefree, eccentric persona.

2nd Romana

Image result for romana 2 doctor who

Romana’s second incarnation was more eccentric, fun loving, and humorous than her immediate predecessor. Her relationship with the Doctor was also much closer and more intense (in an alternate timeline, the two’s relationship did become more than simply platonic.)

This Romana was somewhat more bold and adventurous than her predecessor. Nevertheless she was still somewhat naive like Romana 1 and seemed to be a more sensitive, emotional individual than the more stern and logical Romana 1.

Whilst this Romana was closer to the Doctor, she soon desired to escape from his shadow and make a name for herself in the cosmos. She would soon find her chance when the two visited E-Space. E-Space was an entire new universe that none of her kind had ever set foot in before and she was eager to discover its secrets.

3rd Romana

Image result for amber benson

Romana 3 was much friendlier, kinder and sweeter on the surface than the first two Romana’s. Less eccentric than her immediate predecessor, but just as eager for adventure. Romana 3 was the first incarnation who was on her own and she somewhat struggled at first, but by the end of this incarnations “life” she had fully matured into a capable and resourceful hero in her own right.

This Romana went out of her way to show mercy to even her worst enemies, though she was still willing to kill if need be. It was during this incarnations life that the Time Lady would develop a fondness for the planet Deitia, which would become her favorite world.

Deitia was a planet of similar size to earth, but 6 races as intelligent as humanity lived on Deitia on its 6 different continents. A race of Amphibian creatures, a race of reptile creatures, a humanoid race of mammals, similar to, but much larger on average than humanity, a race of amorphous blob like creatures, a race of giant, scaly bat like creatures, and a race of giant blue skinned, armored hairless carnivores.

The 6 races warred with one another for centuries, before finally uniting under the banner of the Deitians. Romana first visited their world when she saved them from the last of the Great Vampires, after which she would then be celebrated as a hero on their planet for decades.

Romana unfortunately wasn’t as careful as the Doctor when it came to concealing her existence on the planets she visited. The Doctor, apart from a few exceptions such as with the Daleks and the Cybermen, tended to stay in the shadows, but Romana 3, who always felt it was better to be honest with people, would let her presence be known wherever she could. This would ultimately backfire on her in many of her later incarnations.

Romana 3 just like the Doctor would travel with many companions.

One of her longest serving was a middle aged woman named Alisha, who came from E-Space’s version of earth in the year 1918. Alisha had lost her son in that reality’s version of World War 1 and joined Romana. She would later be devastated to learn of her species future.

Romana 3 would also travel with a young woman named Niasia, an intergalactic bounty hunter from the most dangerous galaxy in all of E-Space.

Romana 3 would also travel with Astor, an older man from a primitive, superstitious world. Astor had been arrested for breaking blasphemy laws on his own world, and he joined Romana after she told him that his theories about life on other worlds were correct and that he could finally see them.

Romana 3’s final companion would be a young boy named Mista from a planet named Eliscose. Eliscose had been the second planet, Mista’s people had moved too after their world had been destroyed by solar flares. Mista came from what were regarded as a lower class of people, and so his parents and little brother did not survive the trip. He was later assigned as part of the slave workers to help build their new world.

Mista would come to look on Romana as a surrogate mother figure.

Romana 3’s archenemies were the Great Vampires and the Earth Empire.

4th Romana

Image result for Jenny Agutter

The 4th Romana like her first incarnation was somewhat more prim and proper and deadly serious in her approach to fixing problems. She was also much more cynical and had a very dry and sarcastic wit. She had a real love for flowers and plants which she decorated her TARDIS extensively with.

Romana 4 could appear somewhat cold and ruthless in dealing with her enemies, and was more willing to kill than her previous selves. Still despite her seemingly more callous persona, Romana 4 was somewhat more devoted to stamping out evil across E-Space than her predecessors, and was still underneath, a very caring individual.

In terms of her companions, Romana inherited Mista as her companion. Their relationship remained just as close and affectionate, despite this Romana’s more dry and cynical attitude.

Romana 4 would also travel with Hilia, an alien woman from the planet Yasko. Yasko’s people were a primitive race who had been manipulated by one of the Anti God’s most powerful Demons from N-Space that had been sealed in the nothingness between universes. Unable to escape, the beast was still nevertheless able to project an image of itself onto the planet of Yasko, whose people came to believe it was a god, specifically their god, Yarrosk.

At that point in their history, the Yaskons were on the brink of moving past their superstitious beliefs, but the Demon loved convincing the people of Yasko to war with one another and to sacrifice themselves simply to keep itself amused. The Demon’s influence plunged the Yaskons into a dark age.

Romana with Hillia’s help would expose the Demon and its twisted followers, before she would then join Romana, becoming one of her longest serving companions.

Romana 4 would also travel with a Deitian man named Liser. Liser came from an earlier point in Deitia’s history, before Romana first became known to them. He was a solider in the wars between the different races.

Romana 4’s archenemies were the Vampires and the Nyrakos.

5th Romana

Romana 5 was a much more physical hero than her predecessors. She was somewhat more brash, hot tempered and at times even seemed to enjoy getting into fights with her enemies. Having learned her great fighting skills on her travels through E-Space, Romana 5 was the first to really put them to proper use and was capable of outfighting several of her enemies at once.

Romana 5 however was ultimately still a more cerebral hero who never used violence unless she was provoked.

Romana 5 also tended to dress in more toned down, normal clothing than her predecessors.

Romana 5’s companions included Liser, who she inherited from her predecessor, and Gharia, a woman from Axil 5. Gharia’s people were created by a gigantic robot in cloning facilities. The robot had been created by an ancient race many eons ago and after growing disgusted with them, hoped to build its own perfect race. Sadly however the robot also ruled them like a dictator, which eventually led to it’s creations, the Axils to overthrow him. The aliens would then attempt to replicate their cloning facilities or modify their bodies in order to allow themselves to reproduce naturally and not be dependent on the robot. Sadly however these experiments would lead to the deaths of many of their kind and the creation of various monsters.

Romana would help the aliens replicate the robots cloning technology, allowing them to produce fertile clones, to continue their species properly, after which she would take on Gharia as her companion. Gharia would travel with Romana for many years before eventually leaving to raise a young girl whose family had been slaughtered by the Vampires, Saria. Saria would later join a future incarnation of Romana as her companion.

Romana 5’s longest serving companion was a young man named Ostacia from the dead world of Masc.

Ostacia’s world was destroyed when he was just a child. He survived the explosion in a shelter, and spent his entire childhood and young adolescence searching for other survivors. He would ultimately never find them however, but there was enough food and luxuries for him to survive.

When Ostacia was 30 his planet would be visited by a race of creatures known as the Kaveks. Their home planet had been destroyed and they hoped to make Masc their new home. Believing all of its people to be dead, when the Kavek’s discovered one still alive they would capture and experiment on Ostacia for years, and then parade him around as a freak (the Kavek’s were non humanoid) and torture him for their own amusement.

Fortunately Romana would rescue Ostacia and take him on as a companion. Ostacia would soon fall in love with Romana, though she never felt the same way about him, she did regard him as one of her greatest friends.

Romana 5’s last female companion was Elora, who came from the planet Kiska. The Kiskans were a highly advanced race, who came from a planet richer in resources than any other in their galaxy. As a result they had constantly been invaded by various other races in the galaxy. Though starting out as a primitive race, the Kiskans soon developed the technology to fight back and became hostile to all outsiders.

When Romana first landed on the planet, they assumed she was an invader too, but she was able to help them overcome a plot from within to take over from alien agents. Elora would join Romana soon after.

Romana 5’s three archenemies were the hideous Lestricia, the Helias and the robotic Dasterions who would be responsible for the deaths of both Elora and Ostacia.

6th Romana

Image result for morven christie

A more introspective, tormented and at times emotional version of Romana. Romana 6 was consumed with guilt over her failure to stop the devastation of Deitia. At the same time however this only motivated her to be much less reckless than any of her predecessors. She never made any room for mistakes and was more strict with her companions.

Romana 6’s archenemies were the Helias, who would prove to be among her most dangerous adversaries and the entity known as Malios.

Romana 6 travelled alone for a long while after the tragic death of Romana 5’s two companions, but she would in the later years of her life travel with others just like her predecessors.

These included Pelonia, a Queen who was dethroned by invaders. Pelonia had previously been a weak, ineffective Queen overall, and would be held in contempt by her people. After escaping her world, she would later meet up with Romana and joined her on her travels, before she was able to redeem herself to her people by freeing them from the invaders.

Another of Romana’s companions was the final survivor of the legendary lost space ship the Stirad. A woman named Iess. The ship designed to carry over 500000 colonists to safety, but it was blown off course by a crowd of asteroids onto a planet, whose star was slowly dying. As it was the furthest planet away from its sun, it had not been pulled in yet, but sadly no rescue ship was able to save its crew as they would all be affected by the dying star. The planet was inhabited by superstitious monsters who believed the star was their god, and that Iess and the others were monsters who they should kill to free themselves from their Gods wrath.

With her TARDIS, Romana was able to rescue Iess who joined her as her new companion.

Romana 6 also traveled with a man from the planet Teres named Myar. Myar was a former pilot who went down with his vessel when it crashed. Though he survived, sadly his leg was amputated in the crash, which along with various other injuries meant he could never be a pilot ever again. Thanks to Romana however he would get to see more of the universe than ever before.

7th Romana

Related image

Romana 7 was a more caring, motherly incarnation. Developing the closest bond with her young companions, Romana 7 seemed to favor a quiet life more than other incarnations and was eager to remain hidden, having learned her lesson. Despite this however she was still a hero who wouldn’t hesitate to save others. She just tended to act from behind the scenes.

Romana 7’s archenemies were the Great Vampires, the Elinsions and the 5th incarnation of the Rani.

Her companions included Saria, the adopted daughter of Romana 5’s companion Gharia. She would also travel with Liana, the daughter of one of the worst criminals of the Isacras galaxy, Yanas. Yanas known as the butcher of Aska slaughtered over 1 million people in his experiments during the Askan wars. Sadly he ultimately escaped justice and was never found. His daughter naturally would be the recipient of the universal hatred of her father. In fact several attempts were made against her life. Liana had been close to her father when she was just a child, but after learning of his crimes she despised him as much as anyone else.

Liana on her journey’s with Romana would later bring her father to justice, after the two discovered that he had begun to work for the Earth Empire.

8th Romana

Image result for lana parrilla

Romana 8 was the most serious of all of her incarnations. She had quite a dry, scathing wit, and quite a firey temper. After all she had been through, this Romana was also somewhat less trusting than previous versions.

Her companions included Liana, a young man named Lexa who was a soldier created by the earth empire, but disowned by them for supposedly being defective. He managed to escape the incineration process and later helped Romana in her constant battles against humanity.

She also traveled with a Deitan woman, who came from a time when her people had lost faith in Romana, but agreed to travel with her after Romana helped save Deita yet again.

Her archenemies were the new ruler of the Earth empire, Christine Franke and the terrible Zodin.

9th Romana

Image result for Katie McGrath

The 9th incarnation of Romana was by far the most ruthless and dark. Hardened by years of battling against the horrors of E-Space, Romana 9 wasn’t just simply willing to kill her enemies. She would often go out of her way to kill them if she felt they were too dangerous to be allowed to live. Even Romana’s companions sometimes were scared by her actions. Her relationship with her companions were more tense and confrontational than those of previous Romana’s, though she did soften up slightly over time.

Still this Romana was responsible for the death’s of many of her worst enemies, including both both Zodin and Christine.

Her companions included Lexa who she inherited from her predecessor, and Releica, a woman who had been trapped in the nothingness between universes for over 100 years. Relecia had been chosen to go on a mission to explore other universes by her people from N-Space. Sadly however the ship got stuck in the void. Fortunately however the ship was stocked up with several lifetimes worth of food and entertainment, and Relecia had a relatively comfortable if lonely existence for the first 50 or so years of her time there. As time did not exist in the nothingness between universes, she didn’t age a day.

Sadly however in the final few decades of her imprisonment Relecia would be pursued by a hideous monster named Orakesh who had been imprisoned in the void by his people to suffer for all eternity. Orakesh is believed to have come from a universe that the Anti God’s Demons had completely overrun. Fortunately, Orakesh would be unable to break his way into her ship, but every night he would claw and bang on its doors, terrifying Relecia.

When Romana arrived Relecia was only too happy to go with her, but unfortunately Romana’s TARDIS created a slight rip in the fabric of reality which allowed Orakesh to follow them through to E-Space. This Demon who would soon take over the earth empire in Christine’s place would go on to be one of Romana’s deadliest foes.

10th Romana

Image result for Katey Sagal

Reeling from her ruthless actions as Romana 9, Romana 10 was the most straight forward heroic version of the Time Lady. She was a very dashing, noble and physical incarnation. Much like Romana 5 she was capable of overpowering hordes of her enemies at once. Unlike many of her predecessors she would often go out of her way to show mercy to even her worst enemies, but she was still more practical than her earlier incarnations.

Romana 10’s archenemies were the 7th incarnation of the Rani, the Great Vampires and the Helias.

Her companions included Gyrak, an outlaw from the Helias, Jia a young alien who was the only member of her race abandoned on a far away planet. Thanks to Romana’s help, Jia did eventually find her home world.

Her final companion was a young woman named Tria, a Vampire hunter who would carry on to her next incarnation

11th Romana

Image result for lucy brown primeval

Romana 11 was a somewhat more cynical incarnation with a sarcastic, biting tone. She held herself in higher esteem than any of her previous selves and wasn’t above boasting from time to time.

Confident to the point of arrogance, Romana 11 was somewhat similar to her 1st incarnation, though she was also much more crafty and manipulative. Her relationship with her companions who she wasn’t above lying to, could get tense, but she was still just as protective of them as her predecessors.

This Romana’s two archenemies would be the 8th version of the Rani and Resakor.

Her companions meanwhile included Tria a young female time traveler whose time vessel had been destroyed, and a young woman named Restina, an Archeologist from the planet Haslox.

12th Romana

Romana 12 was a larger than life, fun loving, generous, and compassionate incarnation who was more interested in exploring E-Space like her earlier selves.  She was also the longest lived of all of Romana’s incarnations. Romana 12 was somewhat desperate to make up for her past mistakes and was also more eager to reconnect with her past and visit N-Space. She still spent most of her time in E-Space, but she would often travel to N-Space more so than any other incarnation after her first 2 incarnations. She developed a very close relationship with the 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th Doctors.

Whilst this Romana was very kind hearted, she still had a ruthless streak, and was notable for being the incarnation who finally disposed of the Rani.

This Romana’s archenemies included the Vampires, (including Servalan the Vampire Queen of N-Space.) Resakor, and the 9th Rani.

Being the longest lived incarnation of Romana, she naturally had the most companions. She would travel with a space traveller named Anstonia who wanted to explore the universe, but was limited by the technology of her people which could only take her outside of her planets solar system.

Romana 12 also traveled with Absolam Daak, a bounty hunter from N-Space who hunted Daleks. He soon fell in love with Romana, though she did not feel the same way, she would always regard him as one of her best friends. Daak was the only companion of Romana’s to come from N-Space along with K9 Mark 2.

Romana 12 would also travel with a reformed Vampire woman named Seeka. Seeka had been part of a project from the last members of a race who had been wiped out by the Vampires to try and find a cure for their condition. All of the Vampire test subjects died except for Seeka. Sadly however the facility was destroyed by the Vampires not long after, and though Seeka managed to escape, all of the notes and work was lost. Seeka would try and find a way to replicate the experiment but sadly she was unable too.

Seeka tried to do good in the galaxy, but she was always shunned, as no one would believe that a Vampire could change.

Even Romana would have trouble however believing that a Vampire could not be evil, but after Seeka saved her life. Romana would take her on. Sadly however even with Romana’s help, Seeka would never find a cure.

Another of Romana 12’s companions was Risacon, a policeman from his own world who left it due to corruption.

Romana 12 would also travel with a Deitan woman named Aslo who had left her people to aid in the wars against humanity. Originally she believed it was a worthy cause, but she soon found out that her people, being a less advanced race, were merely used as cannon fodder. Romana would allow her to escape the war.

Romana 12’s final companion alongside Aslo was a man named Herensa, a former boxing champion on his home world.

13th Romana

Like the final incarnations of many Time Lords, Romana 13 was the most level headed of all her various selves. She had 0 tolerance for her enemies, and had an incredibly determined and righteous persona.

Romana 13 would finally succeed in destroying many of her worst enemies such as the Great Vampire. She passed away peacefully in her TARDIS, whilst defeating one of her worst enemies, the disembodied spirit, Resakor, who she had absorbed into her body to finally destroy. Romana much like the Doctor would be remembered as a great hero only after her death on Gallifrey, and by various planets across E-Space.

This Romana’s companions included Aliose, a young and very popular fantasy author on her home planet, an alien art collector who first met Romana when he found her TARDIS after it had been lost. He soon became a target for the Vampires however, and his collection would be destroyed by the bloodsuckers.

Romana’s final companion overall was the former intergalactic thief named Kasos, who after a recent attempted robbery caused an explosion that killed several thousand innocent people, was desperate to atone for his previous life of crime. He would later sacrifice himself to stop Resakor.

Throughout the course of her 13 lives, Romana just like the Doctor would develop a huge rogues gallery.

The last Great Vampire and its minions would prove to be one of the Time Lady’s greatest adversaries . Romana first encountered the Vampire on her favorite world Deitia. The Vampire had landed on the Amphibians continent after falling into E-Space, and used many of its inhabitants to try and provoke a war between the races so that he could emerge and take over in the aftermath. Though Romana foiled this plan, the Great Vampire would escape to the bottom of the ocean with some of his Vampiric Amphibian minions who he would then use to build a spacecraft allowing him to escape into space.

The Great Vampire would then take over various other worlds, slowly building up an empire of Vampires made up of creatures from all over E-Space. The Great Vampire would become obsessed with destroying Romana above all else and the two would have countless battles with one another, before Romana would finally slay the last of the Great Vampires in her 13th life.

Another of Romana’s most dangerous enemies however, were robotic creatures created ironically to slay the Vampires. The Nyrakos.

The Nyrakos were created by the last survivor of a race whose home planet had been destroyed by the Great Vampire. The Nyrakos originally were seen as heroes and they had many major victories against the Vampires. When Romana first encountered the Nyrakos in her 4th incarnation, they were her allies, but when she would encounter them later in their timeline she would soon become one of their deadliest enemies.

The Nyrakos waged a war against the Vampires for hundreds of thousands of years, yet they were never able to wipe them out. The blood suckers would always eventually recover, and when the Nyrakos soon discovered that there were other universes beyond E-Space that had their own Vampires, they went mad. The robots knew that their work would never be done and felt that their whole existence was pointless. As long as there were other life forms for them to infect, the Vampires could always restart.

So the Nyrakos decided to exterminate all other life forms to ensure that there would be no Vampires. The Nyrako also came to view other life forms who fed on other creatures as being no better than Vampires and equally as deserving of death.

Among Romana’s other dangerous adversaries were E-Space’s version of humanity. As E-Space was an alternate version of N-Space, then there were alternate versions of some of the planets of N-Space, such as earth (though not of Romana’s own planet Gallifrey, or of other important planets like Skaro and Telos.)

In E-Space, earth appeared to have a similar history in some respects to N-Space up until the year 1963. In E-Space’s version of earth, Majestic managed to successfully provoke a war between the Soviet Union and America which ended in the deaths of over 2 billion people. Majestic themselves were safe from the war thanks to alien technology they had salvaged. They would emerge after World War 3 and take over what was left of humanity.

Majestic would soon with the aid of the stolen alien technology, build humanity up into being more advanced than ever before. They created a massive human empire that conquered hundreds of thousands of worlds, and destroyed many more across E-Space. Humanity became one of the most evil and feared creatures in all of E-Space thanks to Majestic.

Humanity would also succeed in reviving the Silurians from their suspended animation, who they subsequently conquered and forced to help them. The Silurians would not only use their genetic and cloning technology to breed more giant Dinosaurs to serve humanity, but they would also tamper with the humans DNA on their orders to create super men, several times stronger, faster and more intelligent than an ordinary human. They also engineered these “super men” to be (in Majestic’s mind) physically beautiful, with their healing powers repairing any scars or damage to their bodies. Any human soldiers who were permanently scarred however or deemed to be inferior would be disposed of.

Humanity believed themselves to be the most beautiful creatures in E-Space. Ironically however as Romana herself would discover, in many worlds of E-Space the image of a human came to be associated with that of the most fearsome and repulsive monster due to the horrors humanity had inflicted. Still the humans actually believed that other races were envious of their apparent beauty, and always wanted their race to appear perfect, so any “imperfections” were exterminated or tampered with via experiments to be “perfect”.

The Silurians were kept as little more than slaves to the humans who greatly outnumbered them and were assisted by alien technology. The Silurians did try and rebel, but these attempts were always crushed.

Humanity would become collectively among Romana’s dangerous enemies, and whilst she was able to save many planets from them, the humans influence would always remain large and they were even able to spread out into N-Space for a while in the 30th century, though fortunately the actions of both Romana and the Doctor would push humanity back to E-Space before they could establish any real power base in N-Space.

The Lestricia were another one of Romana’s deadliest enemies who would also cross over into N-Space. The Lestricia were once a race of pitiless conquerors who were beaten back to their home world where they would remain trapped for many centuries. Their salvation would ironically when an asteroid would crash onto their planet containing a deadly virus.

The virus slowly ate its victims flesh away over the course of several days. It killed its victims in the most agonizing way possible.

The Lestricia had only limited resources to try and cure the plague, and they obviously received no help from the other races around them.

Just as their race was on the verge of extinction however, the Lestricia would find a way to halt the disease once it had already attacked its victims body. They could never cure it, and the victims flesh would appear rotten and hideous. The victims themselves would also be in a state of extreme physical pain too.

Still despite this the combination of the chemicals used to halt the plague and the plague itself, caused the Lestricia’s bodies to mutate in certain ways. They became immune to all forms of diseases and toxins, and their strength increased to dramatic levels, beyond even Majestic’s “super men”.

Their life spans were also made much longer to the point where one Lestricia could live for potentially up to 10000 years! They would not be able to reproduce anymore however, and so they would be forced to clone one another to continue their species (with the clones also containing the plague.)

However the Lestricia’s biggest advantage was the fact that they could now spread the plague through touch. The plague infested Lestricia’s would subsequently infect the other survivors of their race.

The Lestricia’s would also find a way to create weapons which fired bullets containing samples of the plague (without their “cure”) and bombs that could make it airborne. The Lestricia’s had a near endless supply of the plague from their own bodies.

The Lestricia’s were able to wipe out countless species across E-Space using the plague as a weapon. It got to the point where the Lestricia’s wouldn’t even have to invade. Their plague was such a terrible fate that no one would dare stand up against them. The Lestricians who loved a challenge however would get frustrated and in one instance destroyed a planet who surrendered unconditionally to their forces anyway.

The Lestricia’s wore full body suits, made from the strongest metal in their galaxy both to protect themselves, and also to ensure they never infected their slaves if they didn’t want to.

Their helmets however had forcefields over their faces that could allow their enemies to see them. They did this to show their enemies that they were not only able to overcome the terrible agony they were constantly in, but also as a way of intimidating their enemies, as their rotten, decaying faces showed their enemies what would happen if they were infected.

The Lestricians would initially view Romana as their favorite adversary. The renegade Time Lady was about the only being in all of E-Space that could threaten their empire, and so they enjoyed the challenge she gave them. However they weren’t always the best losers. In one instance when Romana saved a single planet from being invaded by their forces, they destroyed 10 others under their rule out of spite. The constant pain the Lestricians were in drove many of them over the edge too, making them very unpredictable enemies for Romana. These monsters would also be responsible for the deaths of a few of her incarnations.

Romana’s regenerative powers would allow her to survive the plague, which soon caused the Lestricians to become obsessed with destroying her above all else.

Another one of Romana’s most dangerous enemies were the machine creatures the Dasterions.

The Dasterions were robots that fed on flesh. Their creators originally constructed them to be powered by animal protein. On the planet they came from meat this was seen as the most expendable resource. The aliens who created the Dasterions, the Mirah were able to clone animals in mass numbers. They had developed this technology in order to conquer the famine crisis that had affected their world and nearly driven them to extinction.

By the time the Dasterions were created, food was not only no longer a problem, but too many clones were being created. Unfortunately however when a natural disaster struck the Mirah’s society, resources would become scarce again, and the Dasterions would soon turn on and overrun their creators, effectively eating them into extinction. Whilst the robots had been programmed to serve their creators, when they began to run down, their self preservation ultimately overrun their loyalty and the Mirah were now nothing more than pieces of meat.

The Dasterions would as they slowly devoured the last of their creators find a way to travel through space, by adjusting their bodies to be able to fly. The Dasterions would soon spread out to other planets, devouring more races to extinction. The Dasterions were not completely evil however. They regretted what they did to the Mirah, and always kept aspects of their culture alive, including their art and literature which they spread to other species. According to legend, the Dasterions assured the last of the Mirah just before they devoured her, that their people would be remembered until the end of time itself.

The Dasterions would keep all of the Mirah’s history records, and would proudly show them to other races, though they changed the ending slightly, to make it appear as though the Mirah willingly sacrificed themselves to ensure the survival of their beloved creations.

The Dasterions would only devour races that they believed were either unintelligent, or evil and would even go out of their way to protect what they deemed to be higher races. However this still did not mean that they weren’t willing to carry out genocide over and over to prolong their own races survival. Also their definition of lesser races still included sentient races. If they were somewhat primitive then the Dasterions would show no remorse in devouring them.

The Dasterions did not wish to continue to feed on more clones. Whilst the Clones had been a suitable food source on their home planet, the Dasterions found that the protein from natural creatures could power them for much longer, and allow their weapons to have more power too. Furthermore the protein from engineered creatures was often unstable. Back on their home planet, many Dasterions would break down or become erratic from the manufactured DNA of the clones.

As their numbers grew on the various colonies they established, the Dasterions soon realized that feeding on clones was not a practical option, so they began to prey on other life forms.

The Dasterions were truly dangerous creatures. There were 3 different models, all of which reflected different ranks.

Mark 1’s who were in command were ironically the shortest and weakest, but they had far greater intelligence than the rest of their kind.

They were only for 3 feet tall, had a humanoid shape, except that they had mechanical wings that allowed them to fly. They had enlarged heads, a single red flashing eye and long claws, and razor sharp teeth. They were overall black in color.

Mark 2’s were 6 feet tall and humanoid in shape and silver in appearance. They had no human features on their faces however except for a mouth filled with massive razor sharp teeth. They had a visor that went around the center of its entire head. Their bodies were deathly thin, but their strength was virtually limitless. Mark 2’s also had a blue, energy ball in the center of their chests that could fire an energy beam capable of stunning or killing their victims They were the most common type of Dasterion.

Mark 3 Dasterions were the largest and most powerful at 15 feet tall. They were completely blue, and overall humanoid in shape, though instead of legs they had a large base which hovered 5 feet or so above the ground. Their faces were completely blank, and their long powerful arms each ended in oval shaped hands with three long fingers. The robots fingers could hurt, stun or kill with one touch and fire electrical beams at their enemies.

In order to devour their victims, Mark 3 Dasterions would place them inside their chests (which would could open and close) where they would be ground up whilst still alive and their remains spread through the robots body to power them. The Dasterion’s chests however could also be used as torture chambers. Their chest chambers could slowly cook their victims, electrocute them or worst of all slowly grind parts of them up whilst they were still alive.

Romana would occasionally work with the Dasterion’s to take on bigger threats, but she held a particular hatred for these robots after two of her 5th incarnation’s most beloved companion was devoured by the robots.

Another of Romana’s enemies were the powerful, but secretive race known as the Helias. The Helias were once pitiless conquerors who invaded and subjugated many planets across E-Space, but eventually after several thousand years, their empire fell and they were driven back to their home planet.

Knowing that they would never be able to reclaim their former power, as so many species were aware of them, the Helias decided to fake their own destruction to the rest of E-Space and would then go on to take over other worlds in secret.

They would install puppet emperors and leaders on various planets, and even space empires across the galaxy. Wherever there was division to sow between races, their agents would do so in secret, aid whichever side they wanted to win, and then control things from behind the scenes. It didn’t matter how primitive the planet was. In fact the more primitive the better, as they could then develop its people in ways that benefited them.

Resources from all of the worlds they effectively conquered in secret would be shipped off to the Helias, allowing them to become even more powerful than ever before. The population’s of each world they took over of course would have no idea that the Helias were really in charge.

The Helias felt this method of conquest was more efficient. They argued that whenever a race such as the Lestricians conquered various race, all they did was unite the rest of the universe against them. By working in secret through puppet leaders, the Helias could reap the benefits of exploiting other races without having to deal with any revolution.

The Helias would soon build up a massive empire, in fact it was the the largest in E-Space this way, with trillions of worlds being under their control and their inhabitants not even being aware of it!

Romana first encountered the Helias in the days of their original empire, and like the rest of E-Space she believed that they were destroyed when their empire fell. She would later encounter the monsters servants on many of her travels, but it wasn’t until her 4th incarnation when she discovered that they were still alive and operating from behind the shadows.

Romana would spend the rest of her life trying to expose them and limit their toxic influence on various worlds across the universe. The Helias in turn would try and destroy Romana, warning her that she could never feel safe again on any planet she landed on as she would have no idea whether they were really in charge or not.

The Helias would even succeed in causing the death’s of two incarnations of Romana, but she still fought against them until the end of her life. Whilst she did free a number of worlds from their influence, and bring awareness to many more of the fact that these monsters were still alive, she never fully crushed their empire, or discovered the location of their new home planet. The Helias empire is believed to have persisted until the end of E-Space.

Another race of dangerous creatures were the Elinsions. The Elinsions were in fact created from N-Space. In the year 1980, entropy from N-Space was jettisoned into E-Space by the Doctor. The Doctor knew that it wouldn’t hurt E-Space, as it was a different universe, but sadly when the entropy was released into E-Space whilst it couldn’t harm anything, it soon collided with a black hole causing an explosion.

The explosion would form into a world known as Elisio. As Elisio was created from the entropy, it was unlike any other planet in E-Space. It stood alone with no sun, no other planets and the natural laws no longer applied there. The creatures who would evolve on Elisio would be highly aggressive to all other life forms, and would later find a way to leave their world, and devastate millions of others across E-Space.

The Elinsions, being born from the chaos and disorder of N-Space lived for nothing but causing pain and suffering.

They were utterly repulsive to look at. They had no facial features, except for mouths filled with massive, rotting, sharp teeth, whilst their skins were green, sagging and covered in patches of scraggly hair. Pieces of slime would literally drip from their bodies. These monsters were all as single minded as animals, and they would literally just fly through space without the need for any form of craft.

There was one member of their race who would develop intelligence however, and he would guide the others through his telepathic ability.

The Elinsions were almost indestructable. Not only was their strength virtually limitless, but they didn’t bleed blood, instead they bled cosmic rays which would burn their victims to nothing. Killing one of them could cause a mini explosion!

They were by far and away the most evil of all the many races Romana faced in E-Space as well as the most destructive.

Much like the Doctor, Romana would also face many powerful individual enemies too.

The terrible Zodin would prove to be one of her most recurring and dangerous enemies. Zodin was one of the Anti God’s most powerful Demons. She had the power to transform other life forms into Demons, much like the Great Vampires. However where as the Great Vampires could only make life forms into similar blood drinking creatures to them, Zodin could transform, (with just a touch of her flaming claws) into just about any kind of Demon she wished. Zodin and her abominations fought with the likes of the Doctor, Godzilla and even the Planet Express crew. However sometime after the year 3000, Zodin went insane and vanished to E-Space where she would later become a major enemy of Romana.

After many battles with Zodin, Romana would finally discover why the Demon had been driven insane. Zodin had discovered the truth about N-Space, that it was forced to be reborn over and over again for all eternity. The thought drove Zodin insane. Nothing she did mattered. If she ultimately won and succeeded in this reality, then in the next version of events, she would most likely loose, or the version after that. The idea that she would win, possibly as many times as she would lose throughout all eternity did not comfort her. She felt her whole life was pointless, as anybody could win if given an infinite number of times. There was nothing special about conquering other races anymore. She also couldn’t bare the thought of reliving some of the most horrible periods from her life over and over again either, such as when her own children betrayed, imprisoned and tortured her for many centuries, before she escaped and made them all pay. She couldn’t bare the thought of losing to them even once throughout all of eternity.

Thus Zodin was determined to destroy both N and E-Space for all eternity to ensure that they could never be reborn again, and that she would be the only person who would win for eternity. She came close, but ultimately Romana would finally destroy the flame haired Demon, though as Zodin died, her last words to Romana were a bitter “I hope I kill you the next time.”

Another ex foe of the Doctors who became a major enemy of Romana’s was The Rani. The Rani had fled to E-Space to escape the Time Lords, where she would conduct further experiments both to continue her research and find a way to get revenge on the Time Lords for banishing her. It would be the 12th Romana that would finally destroy the Rani once and for all.

The two Time Ladies had their final confrontation on the planet of Kassericia. The Rani had found a way to absorb anti matter into our universe. Normally whenever matter and anti matter collide there is an explosion, but the Rani found a way to build a forcefield around the anti matter where it could be contained. Furthermore she also found a way for anti matter to be converted into matter too.

This effectively allowed the Rani to tap every anti matter universe as a source of limitless energy and furthermore she could also utilize anti matter as a weapon. All she would have to do is remove the force field around the anti matter particles which would cause whatever they came into contact with to explode.

The Rani’s technology would still contain the explosion, enough so that it would only destroy its target, and not anything else.

The Rani’s experiments were incredibly dangerous and threatened all of E-Space, but she didn’t care. By this stage she had been driven over the edge by her exile. The Rani was even happy to sell her technology to various races as weapons.

Romana would be forced to kill the Rani and destroy all of her anti matter technology for the good of E-Space.

Another of Romana’s arch villains that originated in E-Space was Malios, a mutant created from various races.

Malios was created to rule over the Isek galaxy. The citizens of the Isek galaxy had been at war with one another for many centuries, and Malios was created from the DNA of all the major races to unite them.

Malios was believed to be the perfect ruler. It was conditioned to possess super intelligence, and as it was made from the DNA of all the creatures then it would have no prejudice against one.

Malios was a great ruler for many centuries, but unfortunately a rival galaxy would soon invade and conquer Isek. Malios fought valiantly, but she was banished. For centuries as the inhabitants of Isek suffered under the invaders, they blamed Malios for being a weak leader.

This of course just made her more determined to free her people. Sadly however Malios would go too far and created a weapon that was capable of destroying an entire Galaxy and used it to eradicate the home of the invaders. The creatures of the Isek galaxy did not view their former leader as a hero. They called her a monster for her actions and tried to destroy her. Angry at being rejected yet again, Malios used her weapon to destroy Isek.

Malios would then go on to conquer various other galaxies. She would rule them for a short while and if she decided that they had potential, she would continue to elevate them, whilst if she felt a galaxy’s inhabitants had no potential, then she would destroy them.

Romana would find this out the hard way when after helping several worlds overthrow Malios, and Malios destroyed them all. Romana would always harbor the guilt over these worlds destruction and vow to bring Malios down, with their feud spanning many of her incarnations.

The human emperor Christine Franke would also plague Romana throughout many of her lives. Christine was the cruelest of all the emperors. She performer horrific experiments on many of the races humanity had enslaved in order to make them more useful servants for the human empire. She felt that they were benefiting from being ruled by a much more advanced race, and not giving anything back, and so she clamped down harder than any emperor before. Billions of innocent people died in agony in Christine’s Labs. Romana in her 9th incarnation would finally finish the corrupt emperor by leaving her at the mercy of many of her former victims who tore her to pieces.

It would be the vastly powerful spiritual entity known as the Resakor however that would ultimately bring down Romana. Resakor in life had been a scientist from a highly advanced peaceful planet.

All of Resakor’s problems had been solved a long ago, but Resakor wanted to try and conquer death itself. She did eventually find a way for his consciousness to survive outside of her body, as a form of energy where it could never die. Growing tired of her own planet where life was perfect, Resakor would travel across the universe as a disembodied spirit, initially just to cataloge different life forms, but soon when she saw the suffering across the universe, Rasakor decided that she would elevate every planet to the level of her own.

Resakor had the power to possess other life forms and absorb the information about their lives and people from them.

She would often simply take over the leader of a race and guide them that way, but if she felt someone was a truly worthy leader she would simply guide them.

Resakor did help many worlds, but her actions were ruthless and she destroyed many lives over his travels, which eventually brought her into conflict with Romana. Romana like all members of her kind was able to place a barrier around her mind that prevented Resakor from possessing her. Resakor soon came to view Romana as her greatest threat and would construct a cyborg body to battle her. In this body she was actually successful in killing the 7th Romana.

Resakor would later be driven insane when she returned to her home planet and saw that her people had wiped themselves out in a civil war sometime after she left. Resakor came to believe that all of existence was pointless. Her people, the most advanced, and peaceful in all of E-Space had still succumbed to their darker impulses and vanished as though they were never here. It finally convinced Resakor that no life form could escape oblivion. No matter how far they came, or how much they accomplished.

As a result Resakor would then go on to try and exterminate all other life forms in the universe, believing she was sparing them centuries of struggling to survive, ultimately for nothing.

Her final confrontation with Romana would come at the end of Romana’s 13th life. By this stage, Resakor’s power had grown to the point where she could possess thousands of people at once. Her latest scheme, which through a boost from a device made from technology she had salvaged across various worlds, would allow Resakor to possess trillions of life forms across E-Space and multiple other universes, that she would then use as her army to destroy all of creation.

Romana however managed to stop Resakor before she could carry her master plan out, by using an advanced weapon, created by a race that Resakor herself had built up, but who now realized what a danger she was. This weapon would merge Resakor’s consciousness with a host body permanently, meaning that when the host died she would die with them. The shock of absorbing Resakor into the hosts body would kill them in a matter of minutes anyway, due to the shock.

Romana chose to sacrifice herself to stop Resakor and absorbed the spirit into her body after a showdown in Romana’s TARDIS. Romana passed away on the TARDIS floor peacefully after which the TARDIS would take dead body back to Gallifrey where she would be buried

There were other villainous renegade Time Lords aside from The Master however. The Meddling Monk was a notorious renegade who changed certain events in history that he genuinely thought were for the better. He was not evil or obsessed with power like the Master, but he did still often cause quite a lot of trouble through the history of many planets in N-Space. He had a minor rivalry with the Doctor.

The Rani meanwhile was the most notorious villain the Time Lords produced after The Master himself. Originally one of Gallifrey’s greatest scientific minds, The Rani was exiled from Gallifrey when one of her experiments went wrong.

She would continue to perform her unethical experiments on various other life forms across the universe, including human beings. Her experiments caused the deaths of millions, and she was opposed at various points by the Doctor and the Rani, who became her sworn enemies.

The Rani was always a cold, ruthless and vindictive person, regardless of her incarnation.

Still unlike the Master she did do many great things for certain worlds and cultures across the universe. Her experiments did benefit Gallifrey and various other planets, making her ironically a hero in certain areas of the galaxy. The CIA would even recruit her at one point to help in certain events with her experiments, whilst the High Council would even pardon her too, when one of her experiments helped to cure a space plague ravaging the Andromeda galaxy.

Ultimately however she and the Doctor would always remain bitter enemies, and eventually when another one of the Rani’s experiments went wrong with catastrophic results for many races across the universe, the Time Lords would disown her again. In order to escape, the Rani would be forced to flee to E-Space.

Whilst there the Rani would try and find a way to destroy the Time Lords, but she would soon come into conflict with her old enemy Romana who at that point was in her 12th incarnation. Romana 12 was finally able to kill the Rani who was only on her 9th life at that point, for good.

1st Rani

Image result for the rani

The first incarnation of the Rani was an arrogant, sneering, cold and ruthless individual. She cared for little more than her experiments, and initially regarded both the Doctor and the Master as nothing more than trivial annoyances. As time went on however she did develop some respect for the Doctor, though she always believed that he wasted his potentially brilliant mind on aimless travelling and associating with lesser creatures such as humanity. The Rani seemed to regard human beings as being no better than animals, and genuinely didn’t see anything wrong with her experiments.

2nd Rani

Image result for claire stansfield

The second incarnation of the Rani was more emotional, unstable and vengeful than the first. The Doctor had helped the people of the planet Miasma Gora overthrow the Rani. The Rani had ruled over the planet for several hundred years and experiments she had been working on for centuries were destroyed in the process.

The Rani swore revenge on the Doctor. She often claimed that he was jealous of her, as whilst some of the most advanced races in the universe had benefited from her experiments and research, the Doctor had (in her view) wasted all of his lives, by helping a useless race like humanity who would never amount to anything.

This Rani despised human beings more than her previous incarnation. She loved to torture and kill them just to spite the Doctor. She also however regarded them as undeserving of the admiration other species held them in for being the great survivors.

3rd Rani

Image result for jaime murray

The Third Rani was supremely arrogant. This Rani had bounced back from her second incarnation. She had supplied aid to the failing empire of the Dresana, a powerful race of reptillian creatures. The creatures had split their empire apart into two factions during a civil war, with the Rani taking the side of the more ruthless faction, who she knew would approve of her experiments. The Rani would have access to their vast resources to carry out her experiments. She did much of her greatest work with the Dresana’s. Her inventions and the weapons would help their race become far stronger than ever before. Many of these inventions would be spread to various other races and empires across the universe. Of course many others would try and take credit for them, much to the Rani’s anger. In one instance she even tracked down an earth scientist who had taken the credit for one of her inventions and used him as a test subject in her new experiments.

Eventually this version of the Rani would be banished by the new ruler of the Dresana. Desperate for revenge after all she had done for them, the Rani would join a resistance group of Dresana to strike back against the ruler who had betrayed her. The new Dresana leader hoped to use a new invention of the Rani, which functioned in a similar fashion to the hand of omega and would convert a new star into a source of unimaginable power. Unfortunately the Rani hadn’t the time to perfect it, and their new leader, in his arrogance would activate the device, which instead created a massive black hole that would devour the Dresana’s home planet, and their entire empire. The Rani working with the Doctor was able to destroy the black hole before it could consume more galaxies, but the Rani seemingly perished in the attempt, sacrificing herself to save the universe.

In truth however she simply regenerated into her next incarnation, though she allowed the Doctor and the rest of the galaxy to think she had died for the time being.

4th Rani

The Fourth Rani was initially desperate to make up for the destruction of the Dresana, and the other worlds as a result of her inventions. She would attempt to operate from behind the scenes more. Despite this however the Rani still hated the Doctor and was shown to be willing to kill him, though she tried not to let her feud with the Doctor take up too much of her time.

This Rani was shown to be willing to use more ruthless aims for what she perceived to be a greater good. Sometimes she and the Doctor would even work together, but in other instances they clashed.

It would be this Rani who would finally be redeemed in the Time Lords eyes when she created a cure for a deadly space plague, sweeping the entire andromeda galaxy.

Following this the Celestial Intervention Agency would offer her a pardon, provided she worked with them. The Doctor of course still didn’t trust her and their feud would continue.

5th Rani

The Fifth Rani would be a celebrated hero for many years, a fact which angered the Doctor greatly. She was like her first incarnation, a sneering, snobby, superior individual who reveled in the adoration she got from those in the Anromeda galaxy.

The Rani’s status as a hero would end however when she ended up working with another renegade Time Lord named Lascrious. Lascrious was one of the heads of the Celestial Intervention Agency. He grew terrified of the rise of the Daleks and other monsters and wanted to wage war on them. He knew that the Time Lords would never allow their power to abused in such a way, and so he made plans to take control of Gallifrey. Lascrious did not want to build a new Time Lord empire like Rassilon. He just felt that the Time Lords needed to be more direct in saving the universe.

The Rani would perform experiments in secret for Lascrious who promised the Rani that she would be made the head of the Time Lords scientific elite. As it was now, the Rani was still a renegade in the eyes of the Time Lords, with only the Celestial Intervention Agency giving her support.

The Rani would experiment on the prisoners of the Time Lord prison planet Shada. She found a way to enhance their regenerative abilities to the point where they could regrow limbs and survive almost any injury. It also increased their strength dramatically and their mental powers, with these time lords not only being advanced telepaths, but also possessing advanced telekenetic abilities.

The Doctor was able to find out what the Rani was doing from another member of the Celestial Intervention Agency, who suspected Lascrious was up to something, but couldn’t prove it.

The Doctor was able to break into Shada and find out the truth. He managed to destroy the Rani’s experiments, and bring her to the High Council who put the villain on trial for her crimes. All but one of her test subjects had been destroyed by the Doctor. The Time Lord that managed to escape, was named Exelac. He had been a notorious member of Morbius’ army who had only been given a lighter sentence because he betrayed Morbius in the end. Still his cruelty possibly exceeded that of the disgraced former President.

Exelac had been able to escape before the Rani could lobotomise him like the others to be loyal servants. Escaping into the universe, Exelac would capture other renegade Time Lords, and members of the Celestial Intervention Agency, and turn them into monsters like himself. This new race of mutant Time Lords who would christen themselves the Toclafane would cause absolute havoc across N-Space’s history.

The Rani managed to escape to E-Space however where she swore revenge on the Doctor. She would come into conflict with Romana however, beginning their feud.

6th Rani

This version of the Rani was more cold and logical on the surface but underneath she had a vicious sadistic streak. Initially she was consumed with revenge against the Time Lords, but her feud with Romana came to dominate most of her time to the point.

This Rani was most notable for creating the hideous monster race known as the Grastornix.

The Grastornix were intended to be her warrior race that she would use to conquer Gallifrey. She spent many centuries trying to create the perfect beast, and the Grastornix were just one of many creatures she abandoned for not working how she hoped they would.

The Grastornix had the power to absorb other life forms into their bodies and in doing so could potentially consume all other life forms making them too dangerous even for the Rani. In addition to this the Rani found it difficult to control their minds. Finally the Rani also considered them to be utterly repulsive creatures too.

Most of the Grastornix were killed in the Rani’s labs, but a few managed to escape into E-Space. Sadly due to their horrific appearance they were rejected by almost any species they came into contact with. The Grastornix eventually came to see all other life as their enemies and began to cause havoc across all of E-Space, absorbing entire cultures, and species.

They became major enemies of Romana, but their hatred for the Rani eclipsed everything else and they would pursue her across all of E-Space. On a few occasions the Rani and Romana would be forced to work together against the Grastornix.

7th Rani

This Rani had a truly sadistic sense of humor, and a more flippant attitude to life. Still this Rani maintained her passionate hatred for Romana however, considering her to be as annoying a meddler as the Doctor.

This Rani appeared to be willing to take more risks with her life for both her experiments and to get back at Romana.

This Rani was also responsible for creating the Nexar beast. This creature was create within the power of the Time Vortex itself. It was designed specifically to track down and devour Romana and could travel through time at will. It was one of the single most destructive beasts in the history of E-Space. When it was unable to catch Romana it would go rogue and begin destroying other worlds to satiate its hunger for destruction.

8th Rani

The 8th Rani initially began as a more unstable incarnation. She still wished for revenge against the Time Lords, and soon built up another planet, the planet Relos up in the hopes that they could be her army against the Time Lords.

Over time however the Rani came to genuinely love the people of Relos. She was proud of the fact that her inventions had lifted them out of poverty and made them one of the most advanced races in the galaxy. She came to see them as her redemption.

However she would still attempt to manipulate them into trying to murder Romana. This was more for her own self preservation than anything else, as she feared even if she did redeem herself then Romana would never let her go.

Ultimately however the Rani’s past would catch up with her, when the Grastornix would invade Relos. The Rani would be forced to work with Romana to try and save the people of Relos. Sadly the two Time Ladies failed and the Rani would be pushed over the edge as a result, with her hatred of Romana only increasing. She felt that Romana did not want to save the Relosians because they were the Rani’s true people. She even suspected Romana of betraying them and would try and make her archfoe pay.

9th Rani

Image result for Michelle Gomez

The 9th and final incarnation of the Rani. This incarnation was also by far and away the most twisted, sadistic and evil. Having been pushed over the edge by the destruction of Relos, this Rani was a very unpredictable enemy, who was frequently able to outmatch Romana and leave a trail of absolutely devastating destruction in her wake.

This Rani would gain a large influence through E-Space by manufacturing weapons for various races across the cosmos. She would later use this to get revenge on Romana, by promising to aid the Deitians, who were being invaded by humanity, if they captured Romana and handed her over. The Deitians needed the Rani’s weapons to defend themselves and so they betrayed their former hero.

Though Romana managed to escape the Rani, she was left broken by the betrayal of her favorite planet.

Eventually this Rani would meet her end when Romana 12 used one of the villains own weapons, a weapon that attempted to harness anti matter, to completely and utterly vaporize the Rani, bringing an end to her reign of terror over both E and N-Space once and for all.

Despite the presence of these renegades, the Time Lords would by and large follow Rassilon’s non intervention policy throughout the rest of their history. As a result of this many of the races that had suffered under their rule would come to forgive the Time Lords, and across the wider cosmos the Time Lords would also set an example to other advanced races not to interfere in the affairs of others.

Masters of the Universe

Image result for furon destroy all humans

After the defeat of the Anti God, and the Time Lords desire to not interfere anymore, a power vacum opened up in the universe, and many races would attempt to fill it. Some of these races had existed before the fall of the Anti God and the end of the Time Lords empire, and had even had an influence before then, but it would only be after the end of the Time Lords empire that many of these races would rise to full power.

None of these races ever achieved the universal dominance that the Time Lords had however, but still many huge empires would emerge in this time that would last for millions of years.

Among the first was the Furon empire. The Furons were a war like race who conquered and destroyed thousands of planets across the known universe. Originally ordinary humanoid creatures, the Furons constant experiments with advanced weaponry mutated them in various ways, including hindering their ability to have any children.

The Furons however would overcome this by finding a way to clone themselves. Not only did this save their race from extinction, but it would make them a far more dangerous species than ever before. Now they could produce millions of clones in an instant. The Furons would also be able to manipulate their clone DNA too, giving themselves a wide variety of mental powers.

The Furons most devastating mental ability was their power to move objects with their mind. Whilst all Furons could lift something the size of a man in the air, and exert enough force mentally to snap a humans skeleton no problem. Further mental augmentations from Furon scientists would allow them to lift objects up to 50 tons in weight with their minds. The Furons would also gain powerful telepathic abilities and shapeshifting abilities too, all of which would help them to become one of the most powerful and feared races in the universe.

Another similar race of warrior clones, were the Sontarans. The Sontarans were the creation of the Kaveetch. The Kaveetch’s home planet, Sondar had been invaded by a hostile race of shapeshifters, called the Rutans. In order to beat back the monsters, the Kaveetch created a race of incredibly strong clone warriors, who not only drove the Rutans from Sontar, but from the Kaveetch’s entire galaxy.

Unfortunately for the Kaveetch, the new clone race soon believed themselves to be superior and attacked their former masters whilst they were celebrating. The Kaveetch were all exterminated, except for a few who managed to escape through a time machine. The Kaveetch had been working on time travel technology just before the Rutan invasion. The technology was crude and dangerous, but sadly it was the last of the Kaveetch’s only hope of escape from the monsters they had created. The unstable time machine, just before it exploded, managed to send the Kaveetch through time and space, several thousand years to the planet earth.

They landed in the English countryside where they blended into the local community. The Kaveetch’s leader soon made plans for revenge against the clones, who had come to christen themselves “Sontarans”.

Unfortunately for the Kaveetch, the Sontarans soon tracked them down and killed off all but two of the Kaveetch, their leader and his ex wife, who the 6th Doctor was able to take to safety across time and space.

The Sontarans meanwhile would go on to conquer various other races across the galaxy and very soon became a major power. Much like the Furons, the fact that they were a clone race meant that they could produce several million soldiers in a day.

Unfortunately for the Sontarans however, the Rutans would soon strike back. The Rutans were far more advanced than the Sontarans, but the Sontarans were able to keep up with the Rutans in the war due to their greater numbers. The Rutans would always have to struggle to stay ahead of the Sontarans in terms of technology. There were a few instances where the Sontarans were able to catch up to the Rutans, which very nearly resulted in the extinction of the Rutan race.

Ultimately however the Rutans head start would always ensure that they could continue to hold off the Sontarans.

The war between the two races would stretch across the entire universe over the course of several million years. The Doctor once described the war as perpetual.

The Sontarans loved war. Having been built for nothing but fighting, the Sontarans were always searching for a race that could be a genuine challenge for them and they found it in the Rutans.

Another more peaceful race who became a dominant power in the galaxy were the Exillons. The Exillons were one of the oldest races in the universe. When they first explored the universe, they were caught up in the middle of the Anti God and God’s war with one another, and retreated back to their planet for safety. After the war was over however, the Exillons would begin exploring space, with the sole purpose of helping other life forms.

They visited planets ravaged by the war between the gods and later the Time Lords and provided aid to them, they also helped to elevate primitive cultures to. Among those they visited was earth at an early stage in humanities history.

The Exillons would come to be regarded as heroes in many parts of the galaxy, but sadly their fate would be sealed when they attempted to construct a living city. This city it was hoped would be intelligent enough to cater to every one of the Exillons needs, and sustain itself without using any of the planets resources for thousands of years.

Whilst the city was a success at first, it soon developed a mind of its own, and came to see the Exillons as pests. It not only drove them out, but being connected to the Exillons technology (as it was hoped it could regulate and power it all.) It either disconnected their power (leaving Exxilon ships and colonies on uninhabited worlds cut off, vulnerable and without any food, water or power where they eventually died.) Or it gave them a power overload, causing them to blow up.

The City wiped out the Exxilons across the universe almost overnight, and using its virtually unlimited energy supply, it devastated the surface of Exxilon itself, almost exterminating their entire species. The few thousand survivors would split into two factions, one who degenerated into savages and would worship their city as a god, even making sacrifices to it, and another who tried to destroy it to free their planet.

Various other races would attempt to help the Exxilons, but whenever their spaceships got near the planet, the city would drain them of all power causing them to crash.

Exxilon would ironically later gain a reputation across the galaxy as a planet of evil, with every ship who went there never coming back.

Another major force were the Creval, interdimensional beasts who ironically were once hailed as heroes throughout certain parts of the galaxy. They were a race of warriors who had devoted themselves to bringing down all paranormal creatures across the universe.

They slew many of the Anti Gods monsters and Demons, but unfortunately they would prove to be no match for one of the Anti God’s most vile Demons, Cargas. One of Cargas’ children had been slain by the Creval and so he wanted to make them suffer more than any of his other victims.

Cargas created a pocket universe whose inhabitants would never age and who would suffer the worst tortures, created from their worst fears.

One of the Creval named Deslor however escaped his world before the Cargas condemned them. Deslor was one of their greatest scientists and with the aid of various other races the Creval had saved, was eventually able to build a device that could pull his people from the pocket universe. Unfortunately however the pull of Cargas dimension was so strong that it would soon suck the Creval straight back into it.

Deslor would eventually discover that the only way round this would be to send as many people into Cargas’ dimension. Even worse as the dimension was always intended to be for the Creval and only them, then one lot of people wouldn’t be enough. They’d have to every year at least, condemn another entire race to suffer for all eternity in Cargas dimension instead.

Deslor wrestled with the decision, but ultimately his loyalty to his people won out, and he freed them, and then told them that they would have to sacrifice another race in order to save their own.

At first the Crevals only targeted races that they believed to be evil, but as time went on and their population increased, shortening the time they had to capture species, they would be forced to be send other races to Cargas’ hell.

Their population would exist on their planet just as before, whilst their army would be the ones forced to conquer other worlds and condemn them to hell. The knowledge of what they were doing was often kept from the general population, who continued to believe that their people were heroes. Meanwhile the Creval would soon come to be viewed as monsters by the rest of the galaxy, but no one was strong enough to stand against them.

The 12th Doctor would later stop their army from sending a primitive world to the Cargas’ hell, resulting in billions of Crevals being sent there instead. The Crevals would come to despise the Doctor, viewing him as the greatest monster in their history after Cargas himsefl. The Doctor would attempt to help the Crevals, but sadly they always spurned his offer of help.

Among the other major forces in the galaxy to emerge in this time included the Zystregia and the Omicronians.

The Zystregia came from within a white hole. No force in this universe is able to enter a white hole and survive. It is not known what exists within them, but they spew time and matter back into the universe which can lead to time anomalies, in any planet or area unlucky enough to be near to them.

The Zystregia are believed to have conquered all of the other life forms within their dimension and journeyed into ours in search of a new challenge. Many however have doubted this, claiming that this is just propaganda, and that in truth they were driven out of their own world into our universe.

Whatever the case the monsters not only had the power to travel through time, but they could also through touch alone, age their victims to death, or reduce them to infants. They also had weapons that could age planets to dust, or trap their victims or even whole planets in time loops forever.

Physically they resembled 8 foot tall humanoids who glowed white and had piercing red eyes.

The Omicronians meanwhile were gigantic reptillian creatures, large enough to swallow a human being in a single bite. They originated from the planet Omicron Persei 8 and soon built up a vast interstellar empire. Though it never quite reached the heights of the Sontaran empire, it would remain stable throughout most of the history of N-Space, and the Omicronians would always remain a force to be reckoned with.

The only race who would ever seriously rival the Time Lords however were the Daleks, a race far more evil and destructive than the Furons, the Zystregia, the Omicronians, the Crevals and the Sontarans combined.

The Daleks came from the planet Skaro. Life on Skaro developed in a similar fashion to life on earth. Giant reptiles similar to Dinosaurs were among the first creatures to evolve on Skaro, and 4 intelligent humanoid races would later emerge too, the Thals, the Tharons, the Dals and the Kaleds.

Skarosian ceratopsian

One of the Dinosaur like reptiles of Skaro.

Not much is known about the history of these races, but it is known, thanks to the tireless work of Terry Nation, the first man to translate the Dalek Chronicles kept within the Mesrak’s pod, that the Kaleds exterminated the Tharons and the Dals, before waging war on the Thals.

The Kaleds and the Thals war would last for over 1000 years. During that time both races would develop nuclear weapons which would scorch the surface of Skaro, turning it from a beautiful jungle planet, into a barren, irradiated wasteland filled with mutations and monsters.

As the centuries rolled on, more and more mutated Kaleds and Thals would be born. These mutants would be cast out into the wastelands of Skaro by both the Thals and the Kaleds in order to keep their races pure.

Eventually however the Kaleds soon discovered that the air of Skaro itself had been polluted by their and the Thals weapons, to the point where both species would undergo a mutation cycle.

The Kaled government set up a scientific elite designed to find out what the final stage of this Kaled mutation cycle would be and ensure a way for its survival.

Davros was appointed the head of this scientific elite. Davros was a highly respected, but somewhat controversial figure among the Kaleds. He was a radical, known for creating some of the most devastating weapons in the Kaleds history. Ultimately this had been his downfall, as a Thal agent had managed to set one of these weapons off whilst Davros was working on it.

Davros survived the attack but he was horribly disfigured as a result. Both of his legs were blown off, as were both of his eyes, and one of his arms.

Davros was placed in a travel machine, and life support system kept him alive. Ironically Davros’ life support system would prolong his life as it would repair any of his organs that broke down, and therefore effectively make him immortal.

A third mechanical eye was also placed into Davros’ forehead which would allow him to see.

Image result for davros

Davros the head of the scientific elite on Skaro, after his accident.

Many believed that Davros had been driven insane after his accident, but he was still appointed the head of the scientific elite, as there was no denying that he was a genius, decades, if not centuries ahead of the rest of the Kaleds scientific elite.

Davros would subject living Kaled cells to greater doses of the kind of radiation that had polluted Skaro, thereby accelerating the mutation process. Davros created various monsters and mutations which he banished to the wastelands to die (though a few would survive.)

Eventually however Davros’ experiments would reveal that their race was destined to mutate into a hideous, amorphous blob like creature, utterly incapable of surviving on its own. Davros would build a robot to house this mutant creature. The first prototype for this machine was in fact his own wheelchair and life support system. It was known as a mark 1 travel machine. Davros’s first machine designed to house these creatures, which he referred to as a mark 2 travel machine. The mark 2 travel machine however would prove to be somewhat erratic and would frequently break down.

Eventually however Davros would perfect the model, with his mark 3 travel machine. Using the same basic shape as the mark 2 travel machine, Davros found a way to stabilize the power of these machines, through panels (which took the form of slats around the machines mid section.)

Made of a much stronger metal, these machines fire power was also several times stronger than that of the mark 2 travel machines. Finally the Mark 3 machines would be fitted with a life support machine similar to Davros, which could effectively allow the mutant creatures they would house to life forever (barring accidents of course.)

Having created the perfect machine to house the Kaled mutants, Davros would soon begin to tamper with the Kaled mutants he had created’s minds.

Davros removed what he believed were weaknesses from the Kaleds minds. Emotions such as compassion, love, pity, and remorse were completely removed. Furthermore Davros would also program a strong aggression towards any life forms that were different into the Kaled mutants minds.

Davros believed, having never known anything but war for his entire life, that one race would have to dominate the others in order to survive. Naturally he wanted his own people to be that race, but he felt the Kaleds as they were now were too weak. He believed that they still showed to much compassion to the Thals, and so he wanted to rectify these mistakes in his new Kaled race. As repulsive as they were, Davros regarded the Kaled mutants as his master race.

Whilst the scientists of Skaro generally believed that there was no life on other planets, Davros believed that there might be, and so he programmed the possibility into the heads of the Kaled mutants. Not only would they believe that life existed on other worlds, but their goal was to explore the universe for any life, and conquer it if they found it.

Davros would come to christen the combination of the Kaled mutant inside the mark 3 travel machine, a Dalek, which was an old Dal word for God.

In the original timeline after Davros created the Daleks, they quickly overrun Skaro, wiping out both the Thals and their humanoid ancestors the Kaleds. They then quickly established themselves as the dominant power in their galaxy and would go on to eventually eclipse even the Time Lords themselves in power and strength. The Daleks in this timeline eventually destroyed all of creation itself.

The Celestial Intervention Agency on Gallifrey would eventually discover this potential timeline when the Doctor brought the Daleks to their attention. The CIA had not really taken much note of the Daleks before. They knew of them certainly, but ultimately they just assumed they were another race of would be conquerors. Dangerous to lesser races undoubtedly, but of no threat or importance to Gallifrey.

The Doctor however during his trial in his second incarnation warned the Time Lords that the Daleks were the most evil creatures he had ever faced on his travels, and the CIA would take an interest in them. Eventually when they were able to investigate the Daleks full history (going further into the future than they had ever gone before as a result.) The Time Lords discovered the awful truth about just how dangerous the Daleks were.

The Time Lords decided to use the Doctor due to his greater experience and knowledge of the Daleks, and so they diverted the 4th Doctor, and his two companions Sarah and Harry to Skaro at an early point just before the Daleks creation. The Doctor was given three options to stop the vision of the future the Time Lords had foreseen from coming true.  Either exterminate the Daleks, change their development so they become less aggressive creatures, or slow down their development so that other races will be given enough time to catch up with them.

The Doctor tried to stop the development of the monsters by warning the Kaled government of what Davros was creating. By this point all but two civilizations on Skaro had been exterminated by the 1000 year long war. Only one Thal city and one Kaled city, were left, both stationed a few miles from one another. The Kaled city was protected by a special dome which allowed it to withstand all forms of Thal weaponry.

Davros however would betray the Kaleds after their government wanted to investigate his experiments, by giving the Thals a secret formula which allowed them to break down the Kaled dome, after which the Thals were able to launch a missile that destroyed the entire Kaled city, seemingly wiping the last of the Kaleds out, save the scientific bunker. Davros however would then send out a mere 4 Daleks who proceeded to exterminate virtually the entire Thal race. Only a few hundred in a city of several million Thals were able to escape the Daleks.

Davros would also capture the Doctor and his two companions after learning that they were from the future. He proceeded to torture the Doctors companions until the Doctor told him the reason for every Dalek defeat in the future. Though the Doctor broke and told Davros everything he wanted to know, fortunately the Doctor was able to destroy the tape before Davros could use it to change history.

Davros would go on to become the Doctors single greatest enemy alongside the Master himself. Their rivalry would spread across many thousands of years.

The Doctor discovers the full extent of Davros’ insanity.

The Doctor initially tried to rally several Kaled scientists against Davros, and at one point they came close to wiping out the Daleks. The Doctor himself held the detonation device that would have destroyed Davros’ incubation chambers for the Kaled mutants, and exterminated the Daleks at birth. Ultimately however the Doctor chose not to.

He knew he had to slow down their development, but he felt that he did not have the right to exterminate the Daleks from existence itself. He wondered if perhaps some things were better with them, as evil as they were, the Daleks ironically ended up uniting thousands, if not millions of races together in a mutual fear and hatred of them.

He also wondered if murdering the Daleks when they were defenceless made him no better than they were and thus gave up what was the greatest opportunity to destroy the monsters. The Doctor stood by his decision for many years claiming “Although I know that the Daleks will create havoc and destruction for millions of years, I also know that out of their evil must come some good.

In later incarnations however the Doctor would come to view not destroying the Daleks as the single biggest mistake of his life and would try and make up for it many times. Sadly however he was never able to completely wipe the Daleks out, but he was able to cripple their power greatly at various points.

The Doctor gives up a golden opportunity to destroy his archenemies.

The rebellious Kaled scientists were exterminated by Davros’ Daleks, but the Doctor was still able to defeat the monsters, by working with the few surviving Thals who had united with the surviving Mutants, cast out into the wilderness (called Mutos).

The Thals and the Mutos were able to cause a massive explosion by a mountain near the Kaled bunker, which caused the mountain to collapse on top of it. Most of the bunker was destroyed in the explosion, but a few Daleks and scientists (including Davros) were trapped under several thousand tons of rubble.

No longer needing Davros or the scientists the Daleks turned on and killed them all. Davros only realized too late what a true monster he had created, with the Daleks not being able to show mercy to the last of the Kaleds, or even their own creator. Seconds after killing Davros, the Dalek that had personally gunned him down, and had taken leadership of their race declared.

We are entombed but we live on. This is only the beginning. We will prepare, we will grow stronger. When the time is right we will emerge and take our rightful place as the supreme power of the universe!”

Little did the Daleks know however, Davros had survived. His life support machine had placed him into a state of suspended animation whilst it slowly repaired his organs. Due to the damage caused by the Dalek death rays however, it would take over 1000 years to revive Davros!

It would also take the Daleks 1000 years to escape from their prison and recover Davros’ lost work. In this respect the 4th Doctor succeeded in changing history, as the Daleks were held back by several thousand years. Other races, including the Time Lords themselves, would be given a chance to catch up with the Daleks, whilst they were struggling to get free from the bunker the Doctor trapped them in, and stop them before they could ever reach the devastating level of power seen in the Time Lord’s vision of the future.

After the defeat of Davros and the Daleks, the last surviving Thals would retreat across Skaro in an effort to find food. All of their supplies and technology had been destroyed by the Daleks in their attack on their city.

The Thals would eventually be forced to move to the second continent on Skaro to try and gain more food and resources. Eventually on their second continent they would establish a city and even flourish, despite the state of Skaro.

Little did the Thals know however, some of Davros’ earlier experiments had survived. These mutants were not as far along the mutation cycle as Davros’ Daleks, now sealed in the Kaled bunker were. Some of them were as single minded as animals and would come to live in a lake, just outside the old Kaled city. One group of mutants meanwhile were still humanoid in shape, and retained their intelligence, but they were blue skinned, squat, bald and goblin like.

These creatures, lost and confused would search the ruins of Davros’ bunker that were still above ground. Finding his notes and papers, they believed that they were the Daleks he had created, and adopted Davros’ xenophobic beliefs as their own.

These humanoid Daleks would later build a massive city from the ruins of the old Kaled city, and would devote themselves to exterminating the Thals.

The war raged on for many years, but eventually the Daleks developed a super weapon to destroy the Thals. Zolfian, the Daleks leader, ignored warnings from the Daleks leading scientist, Yarvelling, that the bomb was too unstable.

Yarvelling was planning to create a new robot to exterminate the Thals. He had actually simply modified Davros’ old mark 2 travel machines, but ultimately he was not able to make them able to move outside of their city, before disaster struck the Dalek people.

Zolfian and Yarvelling the other two creators of the Dalek race.

An electrical storm, brought about by Skaro’s unstable atmosphere, caused Zolfian’s bomb to go off. Zolfian being aware of what was about to happen, retreated to a Dalek bunker, along with Yarvelling.

The bomb consumed all of Skaro, killing most of its inhabitants and reducing it to a worse state it was in even after the 1000 year war.

When Zolfian and Yarvelling emerged after a few months, they discovered that some of the mutant, blue skinned Daleks had survived, but the radiation had pushed them further down the path of their mutation cycle. In order to survive, these Dalek mutants housed themselves in Davros’/Yarvelling’s mark 2 travel machines. Now confined to the city (which had been left untouched, as Zolfians bomb was designed only to destroy organic matter.)  The Daleks forced Zolfian and Yarvelling to construct more machines to house the other mutated members of their kind. The Daleks incorrectly believed that the machines were the only thing that could protect them from the polluted air of Skaro, and that they could not leave them under any circumstances.

The two humanoid Daleks agreed for the survival of their species to build more machines. By the time of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s apparent deaths, they had managed to build a special glass casing for the Emperor of the Daleks.

In truth however Zolfian and Yarvelling had not died. They had in fact been rescued by the Master. In the future the Master had just lost an empire he had spent centuries building up to the Daleks and Davros. The Master came to the realization that the Daleks were the supreme beings after all. The empire the Master had lost to the Daleks, was actually made up of several different races that the Master had managed to unite into what he thought would be his greatest force.

The Daleks slaughtered them effortlessly, and so the Master decided to go to the other creators of the Daleks, to learn how to build his own race. Rescuing Zolfian and Yarvelling from the Daleks clutches. The Master would take them to the planet Ameron, where Zolfian and Yarvelling, with the Masters help would lure a group of far flung humans to the planet and mutate them into a new race of Daleks, though we will be looking at their history later.

The Emperor of the Daleks would live just below the center of the city. Connected up to an extra power supply which made him stronger, the rest of the Dalek casings meanwhile were powered by a main source, stationed on an upper level at the top of the city.

The Daleks would desperately try and find a way to move beyond their cities limits. They believed that some of the Thals had survived and desperately wanted to finish their old enemies off. Sadly for the Daleks however they had no way of proving that there were any Thals, never mind how to get them, that is until one Thal strayed too near their city. The Thals own continent had been hit worse by the explosion of the bomb, as the atmosphere on that side of the planet had already been made more unstable by the 1000 year war, and after the explosion was victim to various radioactive thunder storms, and explosions which destroyed the Thals city. With only the scarcest resources the Thals were forced to flee their continent to the one the Dalek city was on. In order to survive the polluted air of Skaro which was now toxic to most life forms, (even the mutations it created), the Thals were able using the last of their scientific resources to create an anti radiation drug.

As soon as they spotted the Dalek city still standing, the Thals wished to try and make contact with them, but naturally many of the Thal people had reservations given the Daleks history.

The Daleks meanwhile had been able to detect the Thals presence in the jungle using their rangerscopes outside of their city and wished to exterminate them. They immediately began making plans to find a way to leave their city.

In the middle of this chaos would arrive the Doctor in his first incarnation. From his perspective this would mark the first time the Doctor would ever encounter the Daleks. Ironically it had been the Doctor himself who forced his then companions, Ian, Barbara and Susan to explore the city of the Daleks. The whole planet seemed dead when the travelers first arrived, but the Doctor, ever the adventurer wanted to find out why, whilst his companions simply wanted to get back to earth. The Doctor went as far as to pretend that his TARDIS was damaged and that the only way they could repair it was in the city. Just before they left for the city, the foursome discovered a strange box left outside the TARDIS which the Doctor placed safely back in his ship to study later.

Of course exploring the city, ended up being the biggest mistake the Doctor would ever make in his entire life. The Doctor and his companions would be captured by the Daleks not long after arriving in the city. They also began to succumb to the poisoned air of Skaro too.

The Daleks interrogated the Doctor, and revealed to him their history. The Daleks told the Doctor that they suspected the Thals had a supply of anti radiation drugs in order to survive, and that they wanted it for themselves. Realizing that the box left outside the TARDIS had been the anti radiation drugs, the Doctor agreed to help the Daleks retrieve them in exchange for his and his fellow travelers lives.

Susan, being the only one who had not been weakened by the radiation poisoning (as she was the youngest) was sent out into the petrified jungles of Skaro to retrieve the drugs. There she met one of the Thals named Alyodon who told her that his people wanted to live in peace with the Daleks and rebuild their planet. He also however gave Susan a second supply of drugs, just in case the Daleks had only wanted it for themselves.

Alyodon’s suspicions were correct. Initially the Daleks had intended to use all of the drug to leave their machines and then exterminate the Thals, whilst leaving the Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan to die. After learning that Susan had made contact with the Thals however, the Daleks decided to use her to lure them into a trap.

The Daleks forced Susan to write a note which said that the Daleks wanted to make peace with the Thals and that they were to come into their city to collect food tomorrow.

The Thals, desperate and hungry, fell for the Dalek ruse, but fortunately the Doctor and his companions were able to escape their cell and warn the Thals, though not before the Daleks managed to kill the Thals leader in their ambush.

The Daleks would soon discover that they had ironically become dependent on radiation, when the samples of the Thals anti radiation drugs started to kill them. In order to overcome this problem, and exterminate the Thals, the Daleks decided to unleash mass amounts of radiation into the air which would kill all life on the planet Skaro, except for the Daleks themselves.

Fortunately the Doctor and his companions would lead a Thal attack on the city. The Thals had been reluctant to fight, after their previous wars, and had become pacifists. The Doctor’s companion Ian however had managed to convince them that they needed to fight the Daleks, or else not only would they all die, but everything their ancestors had ever achieved, or fought for would vanish too.

The Daleks initially had the advantage in the Thals attack, and many Thals were exterminated, but eventually the Doctor and his companions were able to knock out the Daleks main power supply. One by one the creatures all seemingly died, and the Thals, regretful that it had to come to this, moved into the Daleks city, whilst the Doctor and his companions left Skaro to resume their travels.

Little did the Thals know however, the Emperor Dalek survived on his extra power spply, deep in the bowels of the city.

The Emperor would remain hidden whilst the Thals began to use the Daleks technology to harvest food. Contrary to what the Doctor and the Thals believed, the Daleks had not been killed when their power had been shut off. They had simply been put into suspended animation, as the Emperor was able to sciphon off some of his power into the rest of the Daleks. It wasn’t enough to fully reactivate them, but it did keep the Daleks alive on their life support machines in a state of suspended animation.

Working in secret the Emperor was eventually able to sciphon the Thals new power source into the Daleks, reviving them completely. The Daleks attacked the Thals in the middle of the night, and slaughtered most of them, keeping only a few alive as a slave labor force.

The Daleks had never had a humanoid labour force before, and so the Thals were a tremendous asset to them. The Thals were able to leave the Dalek city and help the monsters harness the few resources there were on the surface of Skaro to build new machines and advance their technology to a greater extent than ever before.

The Daleks scientists were eventually able with their new resources to find a way for the Daleks to move beyond their city. They designed a satelite dish that was placed on the back of each Dalek casing which drew power from their base.

The Daleks however still could not move over rough terrain, and so they were forced to construct transolar discs which could allow them to fly through the air.

The Emperor (who placed himself into a smaller, but stronger Gold casing, with an enlarged dome shaped head.) Decided against flooding Skaro with radiation. He believed that the Daleks were stronger in their casings now that they had overcome the basic design flaws.

The Emperor also ironically did not want to kill off the Thals, as the Daleks still needed them as an expendable work force. Despite this however the cruel treatment the Daleks were subjecting the Thals too had already killed most of their race off. The Emperor knew that they would need more slaves to help their race expand and began to make plans for their race to conquer other planets.

The Daleks would soon discover space travel when Skaro was visited by a hostile race of aliens known as the Krattorians. The Krattorians were slave traders and had landed on Skaro with some of their slaves, simply for repairs.

Turning the Krattorians slaves against them, the Emperor of the Daleks would succeed in killing the Krattorians and capturing their technology which they used to create their own space ships. The Daleks space ships would be based on the Krattorians, and as result they would be saucer shaped just like the Krattorians.

With the aid of space travel the Daleks would go on to conquer and destroy various other worlds across the universe, including the plant world Alvega. Once the Daleks had made slaves on other worlds then they no longer needed the Thals and began exterminating all of their Thal captives. (Many of the creatures they conquered were stronger and better slaves than the Thals anyway.)

A few of the Thals managed to escape and were forced to retreat underground, where they scraped by on a meagre existence without the Daleks knowledge. The Thals bided their time, waiting for the right moment to strike back against the Daleks.

The Daleks would also come into conflict with the Mechanoids, a hostile race of robot creatures from the Andromeda galaxy. The Mechanoids were originally organic life forms who found a way to download their consciousness into powerful machines and effectively live forever.

The Mechanoids and the Daleks war would last for many years, but the monsters would continue to build up their empire. The Daleks would also find a way to pilot Skaro across the universe, making their planet into a spaceship.

Among the planets the Daleks would conquer would be Earth in the 22nd Century. They ruled the planet for over 30 years in what was regarded as one of the darkest periods in human history. We will be taking a greater look at this invasion later in the history of humanity.

Eventually however an alliance of races brought an end to this race of Daleks empire and they were pushed back to Skaro. Whilst they were weak, a final kamikaze attack on their base by the Thals was able to knock the Daleks power source out a second time, putting them into suspended animation again.

The Daleks would remain out of action for many years (save a brief attempt by a villainous human to try and control them which ended in his death, and the Daleks being shut down again.) Skaro would be quarrantined by the earth empire. The Daleks however would later ironically be revived by the Thals, when Skaro was invaded by a hostile race of aliens, the Moroks.

In order to defend their planet, the Thals were forced to revive the Daleks. With no other choices the Daleks agreed to an alliance with the Thals for now to drive off the Moroks, and both races would work together for many years. Sadly however neither were successful in defeating the Moroks.

The Moroks would ultimately bring about their own defeat when their curiosity got the better of them. The Moroks detected life signs deep beneath the surface of Skaro. Thinking that it was perhaps a secret base for the Thals, the Moroks blasted their way to where the life signs were.

There much to their horror, the Moroks discovered that the life signs belonged to a much more advanced and hostile race of Daleks, Davros’ Daleks sealed in the bunker all those centuries ago by the Doctor.

These Daleks who had far more devastating fire power and who could fly eradicated the Moroks. Davros truly was a genius, centuries ahead of his time.

Though the Moroks lost, they would still keep a Dalek casing in their museum of greatest triumphs (though it was one of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks, rather than one of Davros’ Daleks, as they never succeeded in killing even one of Davros’ Daleks.)

The Dalek casing in the Morok’s museum of greatest triumphs. Not long after the Morok’s failed invasion of Skaro their empire would soon fall.

After the Morok’s were driven out, Davros’ Daleks soon overran Skaro. The monsters easily conquered both Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks and the Thals. They allowed the other race of Daleks to live only if they agreed to become like them.

Davros’ Daleks were further down the mutation cycle than Zolfian and Yarvelling’s and their minds had also been specially conditioned by Davros to be devoid of any emotions such as pity and compassion. Zolfian and Yarvellings Daleks meanwhile, aside from not being as mutated, were still capable of emotions such as compassion. They suppressed them of course, and still followed Davros’ xenophobic ideology, but they were not anywhere near as ruthless or monstrous as Davros’ Daleks. There had at least been one instance of one of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks who had rebelled against the Daleks xenophobic beliefs. This Dalek who came to be known as the One in A Million Dalek was eventually killed by the Emperor, but it was still a Dalek who had developed long repressed emotions such as compassion and affection. He even had a fondness for flowers and decorated himself with them!

The one in a million Dalek.

Furthermore another Dalek known as Zeg (some of Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks even kept their names) developed his own ambitions and plans. Whilst still ruthless, Zeg planned to lead the Daleks instead of the Emperor after a lab experiment caused his casing to become virtually indestructable.

Image result for Dalek Zeg

Once again however the Emperor was able to crush Zeg just as he did the one in a million Dalek, but naturally this worried Davros’ Daleks who were all devoted to the greater Dalek cause and had no individual personalities or desires.

In order to be accepted as members of Davros’ Daleks, Zolfian and Yarvelling’s Daleks would be mutated until they reached the same stage as Davros’ Daleks along the mutation cycle. They also had to have their minds conditioned to remove any lingering traces of compassion or mercy. Their casing were also upgraded with slats to allow them full mobility outside of their city without the dishes, and a hover pad was built into the base of their casings that could allow them to fly.

In addition to this the two Dalek leaders, (the Dalek that had gunned down Davros, and the Emperor of the Daleks) in a further sign of the two races coming together, would literally merge themselves into the one being, who would subsequently be housed in a much larger casing.

The fused Emperor

The Thals meanwhile were almost totally exterminated, but a few of them once again managed to escape into deep space thanks to a stolen Morok space ship.

The Thals would settle on a planet many light years away from the Daleks, and once again worked hard to try and find a way to fight their age old adversary.

The new unified Dalek race after piloting Skaro itself across the universe out of reach of old enemies, like humanity, rebuilt their forces and resumed their war against the rest of creation.

This Dalek race would go on to be far more dangerous than the first. They would over the course of several centuries build an empire far larger than the Furons, and the Sontarans combined. They would also discover the secrets of time travel and eventually go on to rival the Time Lords themselves in power. Despite this however they would be somewhat set back when their creator Davros returned and split the race into two factions, those loyal to him, and the renegades.

The monsters full history will be covered as we look through the history of N-Space overall. The Daleks despite coming from relatively humble beginnings would soon rise up to destroy billions of worlds across the universe and cause more havoc and destruction than any of the Anti Gods minions, or even the Anti God himself. They were by far the most evil and feared creatures in all of creation.

The History of Our Solar System

Image result for our solar system

Or rather the N-Space counterpart to it. All of the same planets in our solar system such as the earth and Mars, existed in N-Space too, along with two additional planets. Mondas and an un-named fifth world.

Life evolved on almost all of the planets in the solar system and it appeared to develop in a similar fashion too. Reptiles evolved to be the dominant life forms, or among the dominant life forms on Venus, Mars and Earth, whilst Mammals also evolved on both Earth and Venus too.

Venus was split into two halves by a naturally occurring phenomenon, the flame belt, a massive 100 foot wall of fire which ran right the way across the planet.

On the warmer side of the planet reptiles evolved to be the dominant life form, whilst on the cooler side of the planet Mammals evolved to be the dominant life form.

The Venusian Reptiles evolved into Dinosaur like creatures, with a smaller race of crafty meat eaters eventually evolving into a sentient race of reptile men, who would come to be known as the Treens.

Image result for the treens

The Treens, reptile men from Venus.

On the other side of the planet meanwhile a race of human like aliens evolved from creatures similar to apes, called the Therons.

The Treens, though intelligent were a savage and war like race who frequently fought with one another. The Therons meanwhile built up a highly advanced culture and very soon they were able to devise a way to cross the flame belt to where the Treens lived.

The Therons came in peace, and though the Treens were aggressive to the at first, they soon realised that they could use the more advanced, but somewhat naive Therons for their own ends.

The Therons wanted to help the Treens and gave them samples of their own technology. The Treens played along and pretended to be the Therons friends. Once the Treens however had enough of the Therons technology to build their own warships, they launched an attack against the Therons.

They easily conquered the Therons. Despite the fact that the Therons were still more advanced, they were not used to war, or anywhere near as ruthless as the Treens. After enslaving the Therons, the Treens soon wished to expand outwards and conquer other races. Conquering the Therons had ironically united the warring tribes and clans. All of the Treens relished in crushing what they believed was a lesser race.

The reptillian monsters set their sights on the earth and easily conquered the much more primitive, dominant human society (Atlantis) at that time.

The Treens reigned even greater cruelty down on humanity than they did on the Therons. They shipped hordes of humans back to Venus where they would perform horrific experiments on their human captives, sometimes just for their amusement. Over time these human slaves who would undergo several mutations (including developing blue skin and bumpy foreheads) would be dubbed Atlantines by their Treen masters.

Eventually however the Therons would succeed in overthrowing the Treens on Venus, and would later help humanity drive their reptillian oppressors off the earth too, but unfortunately one of the Treens weapons left on earth was accidentally set off by the humans, unfamiliar with the technology.

The weapon destroyed Atlantis and very nearly wiped out humanity (though three small outposts of Atlantis would survive for many more centuries to come.)

Following this tragedy, the Therons would vow to never interfere in the affairs of other worlds ever again, and they would sign a peace treaty with the Treens. The Treens, having underestimated how strong the Therons were, agreed to the treaty for now whilst they slowly built up their resources and weapons.

The Therons of course knew how treacherous the Treens were and would always make sure to maintain their technological lead over the Treens to prevent there from being another attack.

In a few instances the Treens would go back on their peace treaty and tried to attack the Therons, but it never led to another full scale war. The closest it came was when the Treens had invented a new secret weapon underground which could disrupt the environment on the Therons side of the planet. The Therons however were able to foil the Treens plans with the aid of the Doctor, then in his first incarnation.

After saving the Therons the Doctor would develop a great fondness for their society and culture and would visit them many times.

The Doctor learned a special form of Theron combat which they had used during their war with the Treens, which the Doctor came to dub Venusian Karate. Though the Doctor learned it in his first incarnation, he would use it most regularly in his third, seventh and ninth incarnations.

The Doctor also learned an advanced form of Venusian hypnosis. The Therons initially developed this form of hypnosis as a way of putting their unruly children to sleep. A kind of extreme lullaby, but they later modified it as a way of training animals. The Doctor would later use this Venusian lullaby as a way of taming the savage beast Aggedor on the planet of Peladon.

The Treens meanwhile would preform numerous experiments on themselves in an effort to, in their minds, improve their race. All emotions were repressed by the Treens, as they were regarded as a weakness. They also genetically altered their bodies to be much physically stronger, though Treens were already stronger than Therons and human beings on average, their experiments would make them considerably stronger than creatures several times their own size.

Their most significant experiment however would come in the creation of the Mekon. Mekons were Treen’s specially bred to lead them. The had enlarged craniums, and atrophied bodies. Though dependent on a hover disc to move, the Mekon’s had the intelligence of several Treens, and had a much longer life span, with each Mekon being believed to have a lifespan over 300 years.

Only two Mekons were ever created, and the second Mekon, who ruled the entire Treen race until the late 21st century would go on to become one of the most evil, feared and hated individuals in the entire history of N-Space. He led his people into centuries of bloodshed, and pointless wars. He made the Treens into monsters like the Daleks, the Sontarans and the Furons who would be responsible for the deaths of entire races and planets.

Image result for the mekon

The Mekon, the tyrannical leader of the Treens and along with the Master, Davros, Servalan and the Rani, one of N-Space’s greatest monsters.

Another planet in our solar system that would produce a pitiless race of conquerors was Mondas, the identical twin planet of Earth.

Life on Mondas appears to have developed in a similar fashion to life on earth, in that a dominant race of humanoid creatures, simply known as the Mondasians evolved.

The Mondasians culture in some ways was more advanced than ours at first. They excelled at cybernetics and robotics for instance to a far greater extent than humanity, but their space faring capabilities were far more limited.

This would prove to be their undoing when Mondas began to slowly drift away from its orbit. As all life on the planet began to die, the Mondasians were forced to retreat underground and grow artificial food. However even then the race was unable to survive as conditions on the planet became too harsh, and eventually the Mondasians, began to alter their own bodies to survive.

They slowly removed most of their organic components and replaced them with mechanical parts. Many of the Mondasians were driven insane from the process, and so eventually they removed their emotions as well.

In time the Mondasians became almost complete machine creatures who would become known as the Cybermen.

Image result for cybermen tenth planet

The Mondasian Cybermen.

The Cybermen would soon begin to alter their very planet itself. They fitted a gigantic motor around the core of the planet which effectively allowed them to pilot it through space. The Cybermen would then visit various other worlds and conquer them, converting their occupants into Cybermen. The monsters would be able to absorb technology from various planets and soon became one of the most advanced and powerful species in the galaxy.

Whilst the Cybermen built up colonies on various planets, Mondas would always remain the heart of the Cyber empire. The core of Mondas supplied all of the Cybermen with their power.

One group of Cybermen however, who had settled on Planet 14 were able to find a way to power themselves. In order to do this however these Cybermen were forced to remove the last traces of human flesh from their bodies which the Mondasians still kept. These Cybermen also upgraded themselves to be much stronger and larger than the Mondasian Cybermen.

Image result for cybermen invasion

Planet 14 Cyberman

Originally the Mondasian Cybermen had hoped to upgrade themselves in a similar fashion to the Planet 14 Cybermen, but sadly even with their empire they did not have the resources to upgrade all of their Cybermen in the same way, so the Planet 14 Cybermen were forced to remain an elite group.

The original Cybermen’s day would come when Mondas’s power source began to dry up. Having been drained by the vast numbers of Cybermen created since the Cybermen’s expansion through space, Mondas was in danger of literally breaking apart, and in order to stave this off, the Mondasian Cybermen were forced to drain the cores of various other planets across the universe. This only offered a temporary solution however, as the energy drained from each world didn’t last long.

The Cybermen soon set their sights on Earth, their old twin planet. As earth was the same size as Mondas, they hoped that the energy drained from its core would at least last them for a much longer time, until a proper solution could be devised.

Being the elite among the Cyber forces, the Cybermen from Planet 14 were sent to the earth to conquer it and make it ready for the Mondasians in the 70s. This invasion however was foiled by the actions of the Second Doctor and UNIT. The Mondasians would eventually reach the earth in the 1980s where they would successfully invade and briefly conquer earth. However Mondas ended up draining too much energy from the earth’s core, which ultimately caused Mondas to explode.

With their main power source gone, almost all of the Cybermen perished, and their empire collapsed almost overnight.

A few Cybermen would survive however. Low on power and weak, these Cybermen would slowly ugrade themselves into a new, stronger model.

Image result for Cybermen tomb of the Cybermen

Upgraded Mondasian Cybermen after the destruction of Mondas.

These Cybermen, now the last of a dying race, would attempt to conquer the earth many times, and would eventually succeed in overrunning Telos, an ice planet, inhabited by a race of creatures known as the Cryons. Telos was selected as it had massive refrigerator system built by the Cryons, which the Cybermen could use to preserve their dwindling power supplies.

Originally the temperature on Telos had been too cold for most life forms to survive, and so the Cryons had evolved to survive in this temperature alone, but a natural disaster on Telos caused its temperature to rise at certain points of the planet, making it impossible for the Cryons to live there. The Cryons would soon discover that eventually the temperature on all of Telos would rise, effectively wiping their race out.

The Cryons would build a massive city filled with refrigerators to preserve their race in the areas that were still cold to overcome this, but sadly this just drew the Cybermen to the planet. The Cybermen exterminated or converted the Cyrons, with only a few survivors being forced to flee underground. The Cryons would launch a number of attacks against the Cybermen (who converted their city into Cyber control.) However none of these plans worked as Cyber control simply had too many defences.

The Cybermen from Planet 14 meanwhile would go on to build up their own empire, though it wasn’t as large as the Mondasians empire and was destroyed in the 25th century during the original Cyber War, by the combination of humanity and the Vogons. The last of this breed of Cybermen would later be driven off of Planet 14. The reason these Cybermen lost despite being technologically more advanced than either humanity or the Vogans, was because the Vogans were able to exploit a key weakness of theirs, gold. Gold clogged up their chest units and suffocated the Cybermen. The Vogans home planet was literally made of gold and so they were able to not only harness it, but supply it to all of the Cybermen’s enemies.

The last of the Planet 14 Cybermen following the Cyber wars would then seek out the Cybermen on Telos and the two races merged to create a new and more powerful race of Cybermen.

A merged Cyberman

These Cybermen, making Telos their new home would build a new Cyber empire, stronger than the Mondasian empire. We will take a closer look at the full history of these Cybermen later as they ended up becoming one of the most dangerous, feared and powerful races in the cosmos.

As powerful as the Cybermen and the Treens were, they paled in comparison to the most dangerous creatures to evolve in our solar system, the Fendahl.

Not much is known about the Fendahl’s history. Even their planet was simply referred to as Planet 5, but the creatures evolved to possess devastating power. Some believe that the Anti God may have altered their development in a similar way to Sutekh. Whatever the case, such was the Fendahl’s power that the Time Lords themselves would seal them within their own planet forever.

This wasn’t even just the Celestial Intervention Agency. The full High Council of the Time Lords themselves agreed that if the Fendahl were allowed to spread into the universe billions of worlds could be at stake, and so they broke their most sacred law to imprison the Fendahl before they could escape.

One Fendahl however managed to evade the Time Lords and would devastate the surface of Mars, before moving to earth where it would cause the end of the rule of the Vampires. This Fendahl’s history will be explored more when we look at the history of the earth.

The planet with the most troubled history in our solar system however was Mars. Originally a thriving planet, the Martians evolved from reptile like life forms, similar to the Treens on Venus and the Silurians on Earth. A second race of Martians meanwhile adapted to life in the oceans of the planet and would become known as the Blisk. The Blisk would build a highly advanced city at the very bottom of the biggest ocean on Mars. They would never have any kind of contact with the land dwelling Martians, considering them to be inferior.

The land dwelling Martians meanwhile, who weren’t even aware of the Blisk, were originally a peaceful and highly advanced society, but disaster would strike their world when the last of the Fendahl attacked Mars. The damage this one creature did to the red planet was inconceivable and the Martians were very nearly driven to extinction. Though they did eventually after several hundred years manage to recover, sadly their society was a mere shell of its former self. This in turn left the Martians open to attack and soon Mars would soon be conquered by a race of highly advanced insect like creatures from the Red Moon.

These Insectoids, evolved a planet with a similar atmosphere to earth, but many light years from Mars. They evolved the ability to be able to survive in the vaccum of space, unprotected, and used this power to travel to their own, red moon. After finding a way to pilot the red moon through space, the Insectoids would use it to escape their own sun going supernova.

They would then pilot their own moon through the recesses of space, conquering various other planets to survive. They would often go into hibernation to survive the long treks between planets and solar systems.

The Insectoids are believed to have destroyed 100’s of millions of worlds across N-Space. When the creatures invaded Mars, they easily conquered the weakened surface population. The Blisk meanwhile (who the Insectoids were able to discover) were not so easy to conquer. Though the Insectoids were more numerous, the Blisk had an affinity for radiation, being able to absorb it into their bodies. Radiation was a particular weakness of the Insectoids, and this coupled with the fact that the Blisk were so much stronger than the Insectoids physically meant that one Blisk could slaughter dozens of Insectoids effortlessly. The Insectoids had only ever really relied on their sheer numbers, and their ability to cancel out other life forms technology, by harnessing the magnetic powers on their planet before.

After a brief war, the Insectoids and the Blisk agreed to a peace treaty with one another. The Blisk did not care about the land dwelling Martians and were happy to let the Insectoids use them for all their were worth.

Whilst most of the Insectoids moved on with the Red Moon after using the surface of Mars for all it was worth, a few decided to stay. They hoped that they could make Mars their new home and enslaved the few land dwelling Martians that were left. The Insectoids would force their Martian slaves to harvest food for them from Mars, and would generally mistreat them, and even keep some Martians as pets.

Eventually the Insectoids who stayed would refer to themselves as Martians, and they would later come into contact with a race known as the Daemons. The Daemons had come to earth after the destruction of the Vampires, and they would help humanity build up a highly advanced culture, Atlantis.

The Insectoids would help the Daemons develop humanity, and Insectoid DNA would even be fused to various human beings in the experiment. Ultimately however the Insectoids would later be overcome by King Ghidorah.

The Daemons did not help the Insectoids battle Ghidorah, as they felt that with the technology they had already given the Insectoids they should be able to defeat the monster themselves. The Daemons believed in guiding what they saw as lesser races, but they would at the same time not fight their battles for them. If a lesser race did not live up to their potential then the Daemons would even in some instances destroy them.

The Insectoids ultimately even with the Daemons technology were not able to beat back Ghidorah (the Daemons greatly underestimated the Dragon.) The surface of Mars was destroyed , and the Insectoids of Mars were nearly wiped out. The few Insectoids who survived Ghidorah’s attack would later be killed off by their own Martian servants.

Unfortunately the land Martians couldn’t celebrate their new found freedom from the Insectoids. Not only had Mars been left in a worse state after Ghidorah’s attack than ever before, but the Blisk would soon rise from the deep and overrun their Martian cousins.

The Blisk had simply minded their own business away from the actions of the Daemons and the Insectoids. They had taken a few land dwelling Martians as slaves, but otherwise they kept themselves to themselves.

When King Ghidorah attacked their world, the Blisk at first aided the Insectoids, but when it became apparent that none of their weapons could beat back Ghidorah, the Blisk retreated, and hoped that Ghidorah would not notice them beneath the waves. Sure enough, after destroying the Insectoids whole civilization, Ghidorah would simply move onto another world to destroy.

The Blisk had grown terrified of the recent invasions of their planet. Whilst they had been able to avoid being conquered up until now, they knew that soon their world would fall victim to a stronger race, and so they were determined that they would be a strong enough power that no one would ever take them on.

The Blisk took over their Martian cousins simply to use as an expendable workforce, and harvesting the few resources there were left on Mars, the Blisk were able to venture out into space and conquer other worlds. They built a strong, but small empire and soon became one of the most advanced races in their galaxy.

The ocean dwelling Martians, the Blisk. The Blisk evolved from the same ancestors as the land Martians, but they ultimately split off into two separate species.

Unfortunately however whilst they could have become a major power in time, the Blisk got too cocky too soon, and attacked a Furon colony. Not knowing the full extent of the Furon’s powers, the Furons waged a truly brutal retaliation and the war between the two races waged on for a few years. Despite the fact that they were completely outmatched by the Furons, the Blisk put up a good fight, but ultimately the Furons, used devastating weapons to destroy the oceans of Mars were the Blisk dwelled.

The Furons attack saw the final death of Mars. No life would ever grow on its surface ever again.

Only one Blisk ship escaped which would later, after falling through a time fissure land on earth in Russia.

A few land dwelling Martians would escape during the Furon wars by retreating underground. There they would remain for many centuries. Much like the Mondasians they grew food through artificial sunlight, and lived a desperate miserable existence.

Some of the land dwelling Martians retreated back to the surface and tried to live there. They tried to terrorform the surface, and even modified their bodies to survive the new rough terrain.

Much like the Blisk before them these Martians began to believe after having suffered for so many thousands of years that they would need to conquer other life forms and become a force to be reckoned with. They believed their earlier peaceful ways had made them such easy prey for the Blisk and the Insectoids.

The Martians would go under the new name of Ice Warriors.

After centuries of persecution, enslavement, and seeing their planet slowly be destroyed by invading forces, the gentle Martians developed a barbaric, war like culture and became the Ice Warriors.

The Ice Warriors realized that Mars would not be suitable as the base of their new empire, so they soon sought out a new world. Initially the Ice Warriors set their sights on earth and sent a scout ship commanded by Varga, a celebrated member of their race to investigate the planet. Varga’s ship however crashed, and sunk deep beneath the earth where it would remain.

Following this the Ice Warriors would attempt to invade the earth, but the Doctor in his 9th incarnation would foil their plans. After this failed invasion attempt the Ice Warriors, though never wanting to back down from a fight, knew that they couldn’t risk losing more men as they were so low in number, so they would flee beyond the solar system to an uninhabited planet where they would build up their forces and build up a massive empire that conquered many star systems.

The Ice Warriors would become a feared and hated race, and subject other species to the same kind of brutality that they themselves were the victims of for centuries.

The Martians who remained underground meanwhile would in contrast, remain a relatively peaceful, unassuming race, hidden under the earth, not just because of the state of the surface of their planet, but also so that no life form could find them.

These Martians also remained in their original form too.

Eventually the Ice Warriors empire would fall however, and they would be forced to return to their home planet in the early 21st century.

They would attempt to take control of the earth and make it the basis of a new Martian empire, but these attempts were foiled by the Doctor. Eventually the Ice Warriors would revoke their evil ways and end up becoming allies of the earth and other races. They remained warriors, but they would only ever fight to defend other races from conquerors. They became heroes, celebrated across the universe. Arguably their greatest hour would come during the Furon wars, but more on that later.

The Ice Warriors would also eventually settle on a new uninhabited planet that through terrorforming came to resemble the Mars of thousands of years ago. This world was dubbed New Mars. The cave dwelling Martians would similarly finally leave their planet during the 30th century and settle in the Andromeda galaxy.

Despite their troubled beginnings, the Martians through the Ice Warriors and the underground Martians would go on to be among the most successful races of N-Space, surviving for millions of years.

Aside from Earth, Marts, Venus, Mondas and the 5th Planet, life also developed on a few other worlds in our solar system including Mercury, and Saturn as well as one of its moons. The civilizations on these planets however were not anywhere near as advanced as those of Mars, Venus and ultimately earth itself would later become, but they still flourished.

The History of Earth

Image result for earth

Our planet’s counterpart in N-Space appeared to have a similar history to ours for the most part until the later 20th century.

The year 1986 was when the history of earth in N-Space made a huge divergence from our own. The invasion of the Cybermen brought aliens to the public’s attention, and the technology they left behind allowed mankind to progress in N-Space more in 100 years than we most likely will in 500.

However whilst the Cyber invasion is when things make a noticable change, there were several alien incursions throughout mankind’s history before, and extraterrestrials would also have a massive influence on the development of humanity, albeit usually from behind the scenes. Their existence would be covered up throughout most of humanity’s history until the 1980s.

We will briefly look over the areas in which N-Space’s version of earth was different to our version, before looking at its full history from the 20th century on.

The N-Space version of Earth, just as in our universe, formed about 4 billion years ago. At some early point in the planets history a time fissure formed above the planets surface. The time fissure would remain there throughout the rest of the planets history. The time fissure was very unpredictable. It could only throw those who entered it forward into the future, but it could be anything from several millenia, to several centuries, decades, even just a few hours. It would also change size frequently too, and in a few instances would even spread to the sky of earth, though it never became big enough to engulf the planet.

Nevertheless many earth space crafts and even fighter jets would be lost through this fissure (as would some alien vessels such as the last Blisk warship.)

Originally the N-Space version of earth was incapable of supporting life. That would change however when the last spaceship belonging to a race known as the Jageroth landed on the earth. The Jageroth were a cruel, callous, war like race who had caused their own extinction through a series of interplanetary wars.

Their ship landed on earth, then a barren rock for repairs. However their leader Scaroth, was terrified that they were exposed on this planet, and so he ordered that their ship take off. Underestimating how damaged the ship was (and ignoring the wise warnings of his subordinates.) Scaroth’s actions doomed his race.

Their ship exploded and only Scaroth himself survived, though he was splintered throughout various points of human history. The splintered versions of Scaroth would attempt to push humanity forward to the point where they could develop time travel, and allow Scaroth to go backwards in time and stop himself from pushing the button and dooming his race. Versions of Scaroth were known to have appeared during the dawn of early man, where he taught humans how to use fire, he also appeared in ancient Egypt, the rennaisance era and in the 20th century, playing key roles in the advancement of man in all cases.

The radiation from the explosion of the Jageroth’s ship ignited the primordial soup on earth, and caused it to develop into the first simple celled organisms from which all life on earth from the elephant to the Dinosaur to man would evolve.

Following this life appeared to developed in a similar fashion to our world, with the first simple celled organisms gradually evolving into more complex life forms, including the first insects, amphibians and later reptiles.

After the Jageroth, the first alien to visit the earth was Light. Desperate to catalogue all life forms on the planet, Light would be kept on the earth for many millions of years as all the life forms he catalogued, kept changing, kept evolving so he would have to start again. Light eventually gave up and went into a deep sleep beneath the earth at round about the time of early man, with the Neanderthals being among the last life forms he cataloged.

The continents of earth were originally all merged into one supercontinent called Pangia just like in our world too, though gradually over the course of several million years they would assume their modern form.

Close to 300 million years ago, a group of reptiles known as the Synapsids would evolve to become the dominant life forms and rule for close 50 million years. Ultimately however the Synapsids would almost be driven to extinction by a natural disaster that struck the planet earth at the end of the Permian era.

Only a few small Synapsids survived who would eventually evolve into the first mammals.

Another group of reptiles known as the Archosaurs would produce several species such as Crocodillians, Pterosaurs the flying reptiles, and Dinosaurs who would by the end of the Triassic period, become the dominant life forms on earth, replacing the Synapsids.

The Dinosaurs would go on to rule the earth for 150 million years. They evolved into many different forms, from giant herbivores such as the mighty Sauropods, to armoured Dinosaurs such as Triceratops, and Anklyosaurus, to massive killer Dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus Rex, Spinosaurus and Allosaurus, to small and nimble killers such as Velociraptor and Deinonychus.

The most successful breed of Dinosaur however were the Silurians. These creatures evolved from small meat eating Dinosaurs, (specifically relatives of Dinosaurs like Troodont, and Velociraptor.)

At some point in the Cretaceous period, the Silurians ancestors developed much more advanced brains than other Dinosaur species, and adopted an upright, bipedal posture, similar to humans (albeit several million years earlier.)

A Silurian, a member of the first civilization ever to develop on the earth.

The Silurians soon came to build a highly advanced and peaceful civilization that would last for many millions of years. They did develop space travel, but they never felt the need to colonize other worlds as they were able to harness the natural resources of their planet in a more efficient way to humanity and did not have such a large population problem.

One group of Silurians would come to develop a civilization under the oceans of the earth. Over the course of several millions of years, their bodies would naturally begin to adapt to the ocean, resulting in them developing into their own separate sub species, who would come to be known as the Sea Devils.

Unlike the Blisk and the land dwelling Martians however, the Silurians and the Sea Devils would remain in contact with each other and would develop a very close relationship with one another.

The Silurians however would be invaded by a race of hostile aliens known as the Helestians. The Helestians much like the later Treens simply conquered other races for scientific study. Though not being a major power in the galaxy, the Helestians were still far ahead of the Silurians and so they were able to conquer them relatively easily.

A group of rebellious Silurian scientists however, working from underground away from their cruel Helestian oppressors would begin to experiment with Dinosaur DNA in an effort to create living weapons that could drive the Helestians from their world.

Eventually the Silurian scientists were successful and created a gigantic, mutated Tyrannosaurus Rex, so large that its toe was bigger than a normal Tyrannosaurus. This mutant was also much more intelligent than a normal T-Rex would be, having a level of sentience that rivaled almost that of the Silurians themselves. Its skin was so strong that it could withstand the strongest lasers, and it could also absorb radiation into its body with no ill effect either.

Size comparison of the Silurians mutant Tyrannosaurus Rex with a regular Tyrannosaur.

The mutant T-Rex would single handedly wipe out the Helestians invasion force and drive the aliens from the earth.

Following this the Silurians would not only create more mutant Tyrannosaurus’ but also mutated versions of other giant Dinosaurs including Ankylosaurus, and even long extinct species such as Spinosaurus, and Giganotosaurus who the Silurians were able to bring back from the dead via advanced cloning.

Plants were also mutated to be big enough to feed the Anklyosaurs, and similarly giant versions of herbivores such as Hadrosaurs were created (albeit without enhanced intelligence) for the predators such as Tyrannosaurus to hunt.

These giant Dinosaurs would be used to defend the earth from future alien incursions for many million of years by the Silurians. One such invasion was by a group of time travelling Daleks who hoped to exterminate the earth, a major enemy of theirs in the past when they believed it would be more vulnerable. Unfortunately for the Daleks they got a nasty surprise when they came face to face with the Silurians mutant Dinosaurs. Even then however the Daleks were still able in the Mezozic era jungles to construct a weapon that very nearly ignited the core of the planet and burned it into nothing. Fortunately however the first Doctor working with the Silurians was able to foil their scheme and defeat the Daleks. Following this the Doctor would develop a kinship with the Silurians and would come to view them as one of his favorite species alongside humanity.

Sadly however the Silurians would soon face another hostile race of aliens in the shape of the Brain Spawn, one of the Anti God’s most dangerous and evil creations. The first invasion from the Brain Spawn would be defeated by the Dinosaurs (marking the first time they had lost in over 10000 years,) the leader of the Brain Spawn would personally launch the next attack. Being far larger and more powerful, the leader of the Brain Spawn would slaughter billions of Dinosaurs, and Silurians, and almost kill off all of the Silurians giant mutants too.

Two mutant Tyrannosaurus Rex’s, a male and a female would finally succeed in wounding the Brain Spawn’s leader however, after which his army, now powerless were easily overpowered by the two Tyrannosaurus’ who devoured many of the Brains before they fled.

Phillip J Fry later discovers in the early 31st century that the Brain Spawn invaded earth 65 million years ago. The Brain Spawn had killed so many Dinosaurs that it incorrectly believed that it was the reason they died out. 

After Brain Spawn’s invasion of the earth, the Silurians were greatly weakened. Many Dinosaur species had been killed off completely by the Brain Spawn whilst others populations were so badly weakened that they would never recover.

Sadly before the Silurians could recover, yet another alien force would come to earth, with much more devastating results for the Silurians.

In the far future the Cybermen had intended to launch a space ship filled with high explosives to the earth which would completely destroy it. Unfortunately for the Cybermen however their own time travel technology accidentally caused the vessel to travel backwards in time to the age of the Dinosaurs.

The Silurians were able to detect its presence before it actually materialized. Knowing the effects this large object would have on the planet and with no way of stopping it, or retreating into space due to their resources having been depleted by the Brain Spawn invasion, the Silurians were forced to retreat underground where they placed themselves into a state of suspended animation. The Silurians knew that the earth would be devastated by the attack and so they hoped that they could wait it out underground and then re-emerge when the earth had recovered and rebuild their society.

Several Dinosaurs were placed into suspended animation tubes below the ground too, including many of their mutants. The two mutant Tyrannosaurus’ who had saved the earth from the Brain Spawn were now heroes among the Silurians, and so they were placed in a special chamber together. The two had actually mated, and the female had recently laid an egg which was put into stasis next to her. 65 million years later in the year 1954, the island these two Tyrannosaurs were buried beneath would be struck by an atomic bomb. The two Dinosaurs’ preservation chambers were destroyed by the bomb, but the Dinosaurs themselves survived due to their mutated metabolism and awoke. Sadly however the Tyrannosaurs absorbed vast amounts of radiation as a result and mutated to an even greater extent. They both grew even larger, stronger, and developed the ability to breath a kind of atomic blast from their mouths.

The Tyrannosaurs would both come to be known as Godzilla by the inhabitants of the island and later the rest of the world too. The female would attack Tokyo and cause massive destruction, before being destroyed by a super weapon known as the Oxygen Destroyer.

The male meanwhile though initially beginning as an enemy to man would later ironically become a hero, defending the earth from various other threats, including most notably King Ghidorah, who would become his greatest enemy. We will be taking a look at the history of this particular Tyrannosaur and its complicated relationship with humanity in a much greater detail during the second section.

Various other mutant Dinosaurs created by the Silurians would also be awoken from the Silurians chambers deep underground and further mutated by the testing of atomic weapons in the twentieth century including Anguirus (an Anklyosaurus), Gorosaurus (a Giganotosaurus), Titanosaurus (a Spinosaurus), Rodan (a Pterosaur) and Barugon, (a Triceratops)

Not all of these mutant Dinosaurs would be as friendly to mankind as Godzilla however.

Image result for Godzilla showa era

The Silurians mutant Tyrannosaurus, mutated to an even greater extent by the weaponry of modern man. This Tyrannosaurus who would come to be known as Godzilla. Though starting out as one of the greatest threats to mankind, Godzilla would ironically become a hero to humanity and protect the earth just as he had done 65 million years ago from various alien and homegrown threats, such as most notably King Ghidorah.

After the Silurians and their aquatic cousins the Sea Devils went into hibernation, the Cybermen’s ship struck the earth and the Dinosaurs, who were already in decline due to the Brainspawns attack, were wiped out just as in our universe.

Mammals would soon emerge to become the dominant life forms in the Dinosaurs absence. There would be one island however were Dinosaurs still roamed thanks to the actions of the Silurians. Skull Island.

Beneath this island there was a massive hall of preservation units containing specimens from several hundred species of Dinosaurs, including Tyrannosaurus Rex’s, Brontosaurus’, Stegosaurus’, and Pteranodon’s .

When the landmass originally split off from the mainland, it disrupted the incubation chambers and whilst some of the Dinosaurs died, others were revived and managed to escape to the surface.

A few mammal species had naturally gone with the island when it split off, including various species of Sabre Tooth Cat, Mammoth’s, boars, and a species of gigantic Ape known as Gigantopithicus.

Gigantopithicus would over the course of several million years evolve to be larger in order to deal with the giant meat eating Dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus Rex. Over time Gigantopithicus would evolve into a giant ape called Megaprimatus Kong, which stood over 25 feet tall.

Most other mammalian species on the island would be killed off by the Dinosaurs however. The Dinosaurs flourished in this environment for over a million years, but parts of Skull island would continue to split off due to unstable fissures that existed under the island.

At some point a group of humans would make their way to Skull Island and build a highly advanced society. These humans are believed to have fled following the destruction of Atlantis by the Treens.

The Skull Island society would last for several thousand years. They lived in the center of the island and were protected from the island’s predators by a gigantic wall, which their dead were buried outside of.

The Skull Islanders society would eventually fall when more and more pieces of Skull Island began to break off and drift into the sea. The Dinosaurs who had normally lived on the jungles outside the city were forced into the center, and the Skull Islanders only defence against the Dinosaurs, their massive wall, began to break apart due to changes in the landmass.

The Dinosaurs killed off the human population of Skull Island and as the island, with its so many different species were forced together then life became harder, competition became fiercer and many species were not able to survive.

Among the unlucky species were Megaprimatus Kong. Strictly herbivores, the Kongs were too big and powerful for most meat eating Dinosaurs to prey on, but the top predators on the island, the Tyrannosaurus Rex’s soon began to target the Kongs when some of their other prey species began to die out. An average Megaprimatus Kong could at least defend itself against a fully grown Tyrannosaurus, but sadly the Tyrannosaurs outnumbered the Kongs, and gradually over the course of several generations the Kongs were killed off until only two male specimens remained, the largest of which would later be dubbed “King Kong” by human explorers.

One smaller section of Skull Island however which still contained some of the human population and Megaprimatus Kongs, as well as plenty of Dinosaurs had earlier drifted off, many miles away from Skull Island. This island would become known as the Island of Pharoh. Just as on the main skull Island however, the large meat eating Dinosaurs were able to kill off most of the Kongs and become the dominant life forms, though the humans still survived, as a piece of the massive wall from Skull Island which survived, separated the section of the island the natives lived on from the Dinosaurs’ territory.

Back on Skull Island meanwhile a similar situation would develop. One piece of the massive wall survived on Skull Island, and it too separated a tiny section of the island from the rest of the crumbling landmass.

In time a group of humans would come to live on the tiny section behind the wall. These humans were not descendants of the original Skull Islanders however. Instead these people were the descendants of humans who had been shipwrecked on Skull Island.

Safe from the Dinosaurs on the other side, the new inhabitants would still nevertheless come to worship one of the two final specimens of Megaprimatus Kong, King Kong as their god, and regularly make sacrifices to the great ape.

They would every few years place one of their women up on an altar outside the wall, after which the giant ape would take them back to the jungle. It is believed that Kong would keep these women around as a source of company. Being seemingly the last of his kind, the great ape felt a certain kinship with human beings, as they were fellow mammals, unlike the scaly and hostile reptiles he lived with. Kong would protect the young women who were offered up to him as sacrifices, but ultimately however in a dangerous place like Skull Island, all of Kongs “brides” would be killed by the hostile creatures that he lived alongside, such as Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Kong would develop a particular hatred for T-Rex’s in particular as they had killed his entire parents, and his siblings right in front of him as a child. They were also be responsible for the deaths of his own mate and children too. Though little did Kong know, one of his children had survived the T-Rex attack. Later dubbed “Kiko” by western explorers, this little ape had been forced to jump of a cliff into a massive lake in order to escape the hungry Tyrannosaurus that had attacked Kong’s lair. Being subsequently washed down the lake to the opposite end of the island, Kiko on his own would be forced to retreat to the dark caves of Skull Island for protection against the giant Dinosaurs that stalked the land.

Kong assumed that his child was dead and never bothered to search for him. Ironically however whilst Kong desperately searched for companionship, little did he know his son was barely clinging to life on the other side of the island. Skull Island would be discovered in the 1930s by modern man which would lead to disastrous consequences both for those who discovered it, the natives and for King Kong, but more on that later.

Skull Island wouldn’t be the only place Dinosaurs would continue to roam after the end of the Cretaceous period. In South America another of the Silurians underground preservation chambers was disturbed by movements in the earth, which awoke the Dinosaurs. The Dinosaurs would come to live on a plateau high above the Amazon rain forest, created by the movements in the earth which had disrupted the chambers in the first place.

Among the Dinosaur species that would come to live on this plateau were Brontosaurus, Allosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Agathaumas, Hadrosaurs and Pteranodons too.

Tyrannosaurus Rex was the top predator on the plateau, though Allosaurus was by far and away the most numerous. Both predators tended to hunt different prey. Tyrannosaurus using its superior strength, hunted the armored Dinosaurs such as Triceratoprs and Agathuamas, whilst the Allosaurs with their hatchet like jaws that allowed them to cleave off giant sections of meat, focused on Sauropods just as they had done millions of years earlier.

This Plateau would later be discovered by Professor George Challenger in the 1920s, where it would be dubbed The Lost World. The Lost World would go on to outlast Skull Island. Whilst Skull Island would ultimately sink in the 30s, The Lost World endured throughout most of human history.

Just as in our universe, mankind evolved from simian ancestors and soon rose up to become top predators, but the history of man in N-Space was somewhat more troubled.

Not long after man started to build the first semblance of a civilization in N-Space, then he was invaded and conquered by the space Vampires.

The bloodsuckers would rule humanity for over 1000 years, during which time human beings were literally reduced to the level of animals. The Vampires kept their human victims in cages, tortured them for their own amusement, and held massive human hunts.

The Vampires  however would soon become the victims an alien invasion themselves when the last of the Fendahl visited the earth. The Fendahl, a vastly power entity, and the Vampires using their advanced technology, destroyed one another in the resulting battle.

Only a few Vampires survived the slaughter, and they were subsequently overthrown by humanity, though a few of these Vampires would survive, and hiding in the shadows would go on to infect other humans throughout history, keeping the Vampire race alive, even if they were no long dominant. Vampires would subsequently persist throughout almost all of human history, with Vampire myths appearing in almost every culture on earth.

Not long after the Vampires were overthrown, mankind would be visited by another race of highly advanced life forms, the Daemons.

The Daemons were one of the oldest life forms in the galaxy. They had been visited by one of the Anti God’s Demons known as Daemos early in their own history.

Daemos would attempt to mold the ancestors of the Daemons into being his army to conquer N-Space, which resulted in the Daemons taking on a Demonic like appearance. Their planet would come to be named Daemos too.

The Demon, Daemos would be destroyed by one of God’s messengers. His influence on the Daemons, (as he had re-named them, after himself) would remain throughout the rest of their history.

The Daemons no longer wished to simply destroy all other life forms in the name of their fallen god, but they were still utterly ruthless creatures, devoid of any compassion thanks to Daemos’ influence.

The Daemons would view themselves as being above all other life forms in the universe, and so they would experiment on various lesser races. If they believed a race had potential then they would elevate them to their level of technology. The process may take thousands and thousands of years, but the Daemons did not care. They had long life spans and would go into hibernation if necessary.

The Daemons first visited the earth during the end of the ice age, many thousands of years before the Vampires invaded the earth.

They noticed a conflict between two similar races, humanity and the Neanderthals and decided that humanity had more potential, so they helped them overcome Neanderthal man.

Following this the Daemons would continue to explore other worlds and influence other life forms, before returning to the earth after the fall of the Vampires to see how their chosen race had progressed.

Believing them to be a success, they helped mankind progress to an even greater level, with mankind eventually building up a massive civilization known as Atlantis. The Atlanteans would also later discover some of the Silurians technology underground.

They did not revive any of the Silurians, but they did create several giant monsters to try and protect their race, just as the Silurians had done. They lacked the refinement of any of the Silurians however, and most of the monsters they created died.

Their biggest success’ would be a race of gigantic Turtle like creatures which they came to name Gamera.

A mix mash of various different mutants, there were 20 or so Gamera’s created by the Atlanteans, all of differing levels of power, with the strongest being a large male. The Gameras were conditioned to always put the safety of children in dangerous situations above all else.

Image result for gamera

Gamera, the Atlanteans attempt to create the perfect defender of earth.

The Gamera’s would successfully defeat a pack of Gyaos who attempted to attack the earth. They were all destroyed by the Gamera’s who literally ripped them to pieces. After the Gyaos’ death the remains of the monsters would experimented on by the Atlanteans in an attempt to create their own Gyaos that would be loyal to them. Their first such attempt went rogue however, though it would be defeated by the combined might of the Gamera’s. The chemicals the Atlantean’s had used, had actually made the Gyaos far stronger in many respects than most other Gyaos (it had also however caused it to develop a sensitivity to sunlight, and its skin to turn brown, unlike other Gyaos’ whose skin was silver.)

After its defeat the Gyaos would be placed into suspended animation with the Atltantean’s hoping that they could revive and control it at a later date. It would remain trapped however until the 1960s, as the Atlanteans due to other more important matters, would forget about it, though other experiments with the Gyaos DNA would continue leading to the creation of a second Gyaos, though unlike the first, this one could reproduce. Much like the first Gyaos however it would be kept in suspended animation until it could be controlled.

During these golden years of humanity, the Daemons and humanity would also come into contact with the Insectoids of Mars who helped to guide their humanity too. The Insectoids would also begin to incorporate elements of the Daemons culture into their own, and even took on a more horned appearance. Both the Daemons and the Insectoids working together would later go on to perform experiments on humanity, where they would fuse DNA from the Insectoids into early humans bodies, in a further effort to elevate their race.

The Insectoids however would later be wiped out by King Ghidorah, when the golden dragon attacked the surface of Mars. The Daemons did not help the Insectoids believing that they should be strong enough to defend themselves from Ghidorah, and if not, then they would be a failed experiment. The Daemons prevented the humans from sending the Gamera’s to try and help the Insectoids too, though even with the ban, 5 Gamera’s would be sent to try and stop Ghidorah, though none of them were the strongest male, and they were all killed.

Following the Insectoids destruction, King Ghidorah would visit the earth, but he would be driven off by the 15 remaining Gameras. Ghidorah managed to kill all but one of the Gameras, the strongest male who was still nevertheless greatly weakened as a result.

The Daemons meanwhile would leave the earth soon after the Gameras defeated Ghidorah. They were called back to deal with a civil war on their own planet. Some of the Daemons wanted to follow their gods original plan and destroy all other life forms in the universe, whilst others preferred merely to study and experiment on lesser life forms.

The Daemons would wipe themselves out in the conflict and destroy their planet. Only one of the Daemons would remain on earth, Azal. Azal had gone into hibernation at a point when the Daemons had decided that mankind was progressing too fast, and Atlantis needed to be destroyed. It was really the development of the Gamera’s that scared the Daemons. The Daemons believed that the Atlanteans were in danger of creating more monsters like Gamera who could potentially destroy all life on earth permanently. Azals job was to help humanity start again when he woke up.

However after Azal went into hibernation, the Daemons civil war started and so the Daemons assigned the task of destroying Atlantis were called back to fight in the war instead with Azal being forgotten about on earth.

Ironically not long after Azal went to sleep, the earth would be invaded by the Treens (it is believed that the Treens monitored the earth, trying to find a way to defeat the Daemons, until eventually whenthe Daemons left, the Treens saw a golden opportunity.)

The Atlanteans sent in the last Gamera, but he was so weak the Treens were able to defeat him. He did hold them off for a short while, but the lizard monsters were able to bury Gamera beneath the ice in a sneak attack, where he would remain for thousands of years.

The Treens actions would eventually lead to the destruction of Atlantis, ironically just as the Daemons had hoped. The Treens conquered the Atlantines and shipped several of them back to Venus for experimentation. The Therons would, after overthrowing the Treens on their home planet, defeat the reptillian monsters on earth too. Sadly however towards the end of the war on earth, the Atlantines would accidentally set off a Treen weapon which destroyed their entire society and devastated the surface of earth.

Only three small outposts of Atlantis survived. Two of these were under the ocean, whilst the third existed on land. The two ocean outposts were far more advanced, though they would remain hidden from the outside world for thousands of years, with one surviving until the 20th century, and another surviving until the Dalek invasion in the 22nd century.

One of the two outposts under the ocean would much as the Silurians had done many millions of years earlier, place themselves into suspended animation. They believed that their planet had become almost uninhabitable, and hoped to emerge at a point when it had recovered.

Having remembered what happened to the Silurians, they created several monsters and placed them into suspended animation so that when the time the Atlanteans would awaken, their monsters could destroy any other life forms who may have emerged in the interim.

The monsters they created were Megalon, a gigantic insect like creature, Manda, a gigantic reptile like beast, and the second Gyaos.

The land outpost of Atlantis meanwhile was more primitive. Its inhabitants also, incorrectly believed that they were the only humans left on earth after the Treen invasion, with the land outside of their city being a desolate wasteland.

The land outpost of Atlantis would be destroyed just a few hundred years after the Treen invasion, thanks to the Masters actions in trying to gain control of Chronos, the most powerful of the Chronovores. The Masters actions ended up freeing the Chronovore who subsequently destroyed Atlantis in his rage, killing every single one of its people.

Thousands of years later when Azal woke up, he would incorrectly believe that the Daemons had finished their task and destroyed Atlantis.

What was left of mankind, scattered and fragmented would take 100s of years to recover. During this period a group of pre clone Furons landed on the earth after their war with the Blisk. They would mate with human beings causing Furon DNA to be fused with most humans across the globe.

Many centuries after the Furons visit, the God and the Anti God would have their final battle which would end in the Anti God’s defeat, though not before the Anti God created Satan. In the thousands of years before Jesus would finally defeat Satan, the monster would enjoy toying with humanity. It didn’t overrun humanity like the Vampires. Instead Satan would simply influence humanity in negative ways and make them slaughter one another in various wars.

At some point after the final battle of the Anti God and God, the recorded history of the human race would begin.

From this point on there doesn’t appear to be much difference between the history of N-Space’s version of earth and ours until the 20th century, though there were a few notable alien incursions, which would be covered up to the general public, or misunderstood as being something other than an alien invasion until the end of the 20th century.

Jesus Christ, a powerful alien for instance and servant of God would be mistaken for the son of God when he visited the earth, to finally defeat Satan in the year 36 AD, and seal the monster deep within the earth in a cannister where he would remain for 2000 years.

The Doctor would also become involved in many important events in human history too. It was the Doctor who gave the Greeks the idea for the Trojan horse, and it was also the Doctor who (unintentionally) gave the idea of burning Rome to Nero, when he accidentally set fire to Nero’s map of Rome.

In addition to this the Osirans had their final battle with Sutekh the Destroyer on earth many thousands of years ago too at the dawn of Egyptian civilization. They managed to finally defeat the monster, after which they sealed him up deep beneath the black Pyramid on earth. Sutekh however was actually kept in his prison by a special device called the Eye of Horus, which was in turn kept within the Pyramid of Mars (by that point Mars was seemingly a dead world, and it was the Osirans who built the Pyramid of Mars.)

The human population of ancient Egypt would subsequently model their society on the Osirans, whilst the Osirans war with one another entered into the mythology of their planet.

The Daleks also briefly visited Egypt, long after the Osirans had left. They were pursuing the Doctor, then in his first incarnation after he had stolen a vital component for their super weapon, the Time Destructor. Unfortunately the Daleks were able to capture the Doctors companions and force him to hand the Time Destructor over to them (though the Doctor would successfully follow them back to their base on Kembel in the future.) The Daleks were attacked by several Egyptians who believed them to be Demons. Naturally the Daleks slaughtered hundreds of Egyptians, but still, armed with only their primitive sticks and rocks the Egyptians were able to overpower and kill one Dalek at least.

At some point the Exillons also visited the earth and would play a role in helping to build many of its ancient civilizations.

In the 10th century of England, a Sontaran warrior named Linx crashed into the earth after a battle with Rutan scouts. Desperate and in need of help, Linx made a deal with a warrior named Irongron.

Linx promised to give Irongron advanced weaponry that would allow him to conquer the world, as long as Irongron gave the Sontaran a safe place to repair his ship.

Linx however knew that he could not get Irongron’s men to help repair the ship. Not only would they have no understanding, but they also had no equipment either. Using very basic Sontaran time travel technology, Linx was able project an image of himself as far as the 20th century, where he would begin to abduct various scientists back to the 10th century. Linx worked the scientists almost to death to repair his ship.

This of course drew the attention of the 3rd Doctor and UNIT, and the 3rd Doctor would later follow Linx to the 10th Century where he would confront the Sontaran and Irongron. The Doctor tried pleading with Linx, telling him that by giving Irongron weapons this advanced in the 10th century would alter their history in devastating ways. Linx however had no interest in the development of humans, only in returning to his glorious cause.

The Doctor was eventually able to send all of the scientists home, whilst Linx ultimately killed Irongron, after the latter incorrectly assumed he was trying to turn on him. Linx himself was killed when Hal the Archer shot his probic vent with an arrow. Hal shot Linx just as he was taking off which caused his ship to explode, destroying all of the advanced weapons Linx had intended to give Irongron in the process and preserving the timeline.

The renegade Time Lord known as the Monk would also attempt to alter human history in the year 1066, by destroying the Viking invaders. The Monk genuinely believed that he was changing history for the better, as he believed Harold had the potential to be a great king that would cause England to enter a golden age.

The 1st Doctor however intervened and stopped the Monk’s plan. He also shrunk the inside of his TARDIS to prevent him from interfering in more events throughout history.

The Monk however would later find a way to repair his TARDIS and would pursue the Doctor throughout time and space for revenge, beginning their feud.

The renegade Time Lord known as The Monk in 1066.

In the year 1666, earth was visited again by aliens, specifically a renegade group from a race known as the Terileptiles. The Terileptiles were a major force in the galaxy at that point, and would continue to be for centuries to come. Eventually they would be wiped out in a war with another race known as the Hakolian. The two species had been sworn enemies since they both first began to expand into space. They did briefly call a truce however at some point in the 15th century. As a sign of good faith, the Terileptiles even mined a rare mineral known as Tinclavic for the Hakolian, though they used their criminals as a slave labor force to do so.

The Terileptiles were a highly artistic, yet still warlike race of reptillian humanoids. They appeared to value beauty above all else, even in warfare.

The renegade Terileptiles who visited the earth hoped to exterminate the human race by finding a way to make the Plague that was already ravaging Europe, airborne and then spread it all over the entire world. The renegade Terileptiles could never return to their own planet, and hoped to make the earth their new base of operations.

The Fifth Doctor did offer to take the renegade Terileptiles to another uninhabited planet where they could live in peace, but they of course refused, arguing that what they were doing to humanity was no worse than what the humans did to lesser creatures every day.

The Doctor was able to destroy the Terileptiles plague, though in the resulting fight, a piece of Terileptiles technology ended up causing a fire, which spread its way through London, eventually leading to the great fire of London in 1666. All of the renegade Terileptiles were killed in the blaze.

In the later 19th century earth would deal with two more major threats. The first of these was when the Alien known as Light was awoken from its slumber.

Light was actually awoken by the 7th Doctor, from his spaceship buried under Gabriel Chase mansion. The alien that Light had granted immortality to in order to help survey the earth, had now gone rogue in its masters absence and sought to take over the planet. It assumed a human form named Josiah to blend in and used Gabriel Chase mansion as its base of operations. Josiah planned to assassinate Queen Victoria and take over the British empire. With there seemingly being no way to stop Josiah, the 7th Doctor summoned Light, but unfortunately Light was driven insane when he saw how much the world had changed in his absence. Light finally realized that his cataloge of all life on earth would never be complete and so he decided he was going to stop all life evolving.

At Light first thought about freezing all life on earth, and turned two young women, Mrs Pritchard and her daughter, to stone, to test the method out. Worse still the two women, were still aware and fully conscious.

Light then considered regressing all life on earth back to the primordial soup, and tested this gruesome method out on a Scotland Yard Inspector who had come to investigate the strange goings on at Perivale house.

Ultimately Light decided that he would destroy the earth and then go on to catalogue other worlds life forms, and destroy them before they could change.

The Doctor however stopped Light. He tricked the entity by telling him his collection was incomplete as other life forms had appeared when he was asleep. He also told Light about mythological creatures, and lied that they were real. Unable to cope with his collection being incomplete, or comprehend these strange mythological creatures the Doctor talked about, Light had a full breakdown and eventually committed suicide.

The living computer, simply named Control on board Light’s ship, who had changed into a human form, would soon leave to explore the universe in Light’s old ship, alongside a Neanderthal man, whom Light had preserved, named Nimrod, and a big game hunter from earth named Redvers Fenn Cooper. Josiah was kept as their prisoner as a punishment for all of his sins.

Gabriel Chase mansion would be abandoned soon after, yet it would remain for close to 100 years on the outskirts of Perivale, with many believing it to be a haunted house. Eventually in the year 1984, a young teenager, and future companion of the Doctor, named Dorothy would visit the house. Dorothy sensed that there was a great evil in the house. In reality it was the remains of Light’s consciousness scattered through the mansion. They would never be able to reform, but the evil from Light’s persona was still present, and Dorothy became so scared she burned the mansion to the ground.

Years later when Dorothy (now known by the name of Ace) was travelling with the 7th Doctor, he would take her back to Gabriel Chase mansion to discover what had happened there, and Ace would actually be present at Light’s death.

Image result for Pritchard turned to stone doctor who

Mrs Pritchard and her long lost daughter seconds before they were both turned to stone by Light in his first attempt to prevent life from changing. The two would remain as statues for close to 100 years, conscious throughout the whole ordeal until Ace burned the house down in the early 80s, finally freeing them from their torment. 

The next major threat would be from humanities own future. Magnus Creel, also known as the butcher of Brisbane had traveled to the 19th century to escape the authorities in his own time, the 50th century.

Greel had attempted to discover the secret of time travel but his experiments had led to tremendous suffering and loss of life. Eventually however Greel was able to project himself backwards in time, but doing so left him horribly mutilated.

Creel would attempt to continue his disastrous experiments in 19th century London. He was also forced to drain the life of several young women to prolong his own, after his body had been damaged by his experiments.

This drew the attention of the 4th Doctor, and two investigators Jago and Litefoot who together were able to stop Creel before his attempts to perfect his experiments would have created a rip in the very fabric of time destroying the entire earth. Creel was killed by the Doctor in the process who threw him into one of his own time machines that drained all of Creel’s bodily fluids and turned him into a husk.

Jago and Litefoot would go on to investigate more paranormal activities and creatures for the rest of their lives, and would even go on to work with the Doctor many times, across multiple incarnations.

Over the course of the next century, humanity would not only face more alien and paranormal threats, but modern man would finally discover once and for all that he was not alone in the universe.

In the next section we will look at how mankind reached new heights, survived invasions from some of the most terrible creatures of N-Space from the Treens to the Daleks, how it reached its peak, and how ultimately humanity’s foolish actions would threaten to tear their world apart.

To be continued.

5 Worst Right Wingers On Youtube

Image result for Sargon of AkkadImage result for Yaron Brook

Okay hands up for the past few years I admit, I have been focusing a bit too much on the people I despise on the left like Anita Sarkeesian, Linda Sarsour, Owen Jones, and Whovian Feminism.

The left currently are a bigger danger than the right in many ways. Whilst we may have a right wing government in power, its the regressive left who hold all the social influence. You’re not in danger of being tarred as a racist, a bigot, or in getting fired from your job, ostracised by friends, or blacklisted if you say you disagree with any piece of right wing dogma in public.

Currently its okay, even trendy to bash the right, but that could change very soon. The next generation after Millennials, Generation Z are said to be the most right wing since World War 2.

Its understandable. Many young people will have taken one look at screaming feminists and leftists, throwing trash cans and pepper spraying women in the eyes when they don’t get their own way, focusing on debunked concerns like the gender wage gap, whilst ignoring tragedies like the Rochdale grooming scandal (and even silencing the people who do bring awareness to these scandals such as Tommy Robinson), spewing the most disgusting bigotry against white men, and being happy to ruin a man’s life over a joke about a dog doing a Nazi salute, and thought, that’s the last thing they want to be!

Still the right are not a suitable alternative, as I will explore in this article. The right in my opinion would be every bit as fascistic, bigoted, intolerant and tribal as the left currently are if they were in control, and that’s why I think its important to debunk them now.

Rather than just trade left wing identity politics for right wing tribalism, we need to provide a suitable alternative that looks at the best political options in a practical and even handed way.

5/ Sargon of Akkad

Image result for Sargon of Akkad

I used to quite like Sargon’s videos and even used a few of them as references in some of my earlier articles. However my respect for him has diminished gradually over the last year or so, until now I’d regard him as nothing more than a right wing SJW.

Sargon unlike the others on this list has done many good things in the past.

He has rightfully criticised bigots, fanatics and chancers on the left such as Anita Sarkeesian, whilst still defending genuinely socialist ideas such as the NHS and the welfare state.

I’m quite a socialist in some ways. I like the idea of socialised healthcare and welfare”

“In most cases, poverty is something that happens to you, not something that you choose. You’ve got to to get this notion that these are just lazy and feckless individuals out of your mind. They’re not. They’re working full time just to maintain the bare minimum. I don’t see why a bit of compassion is out of order. If it were you in their position, unable to catch a break, unable to get off the bottom rung, are you honestly going to sit there and tell me that you would say the blame lies entirely with you and none of it lies on the system within which you are trapped?”

In addition to this he also supported Bernie Sanders, until Hillary torpedoed his chances.

He also did fantastic work in debunking the mainstream media’s bullshit claims about Assad launching a chemical attack on Syria in 2017 in the two part series “A Tale of Two Narratives”.

I can’t recommend this mini series enough. Its in all fairness probably the best debunking of the media’s claims about Syria I have ever seen. 

Sargon is also a supporter of gay marriage, and has also openly criticised the bigoted and pseudo scientific idea of race realism, and given a platform to Tommy Robinson when the mainstream media were viciously slandering him as a racist. He also recently supported the youtuber Mark Meechan, better known as Count Dankula when he was unfairly fined for making his pug perform a Nazi salute as a joke to wind up his girlfriend.

So no I don’t hate Sargon, I just simply feel that in the last year or so, Sargon has become so disgusted with the left, that he has now genuinely turned completely to the right. Of course a more cynical view might be that Sargon of Akkad is simply a sell out, as he is more likely to get his money from the right.

Whatever the case Sargon is now such a fanatic in his hatred of socialists and communists that he is happy to tar them all as evil, and defend people who have silenced, tortured and even killed socialists and communists in the past.

Sargon has outright said several times that if you are a communist, then you are a bad person, refused to listen to a communists idea of what is amoral in a debate, on the grounds that all communists are amoral, and has expressed admiration for Joseph McCarthy of all people.

Sargon also said in another video when talking about communists that he wants McCarthy back!

Worse than his defence of McCarthy is Sargon’s apologism for Pinochet. Sargon has regularly attempted to downplay the horrors carried out by Pinochet, and dismissed his victims as being communists who got what they deserved. He said that all Pinochet did was “take care of his communist problem”, and in his most recent video, Sargon said that all Pinochet did was kill 400 communists. Leaving aside the fact that he killed far more than just 400 people.

Is Sargon honestly saying that it didn’t matter that Pinochet killed 400 people, simply because they were communists?

Sargon is now ironically just the right wing version of all the things he claims to hate about the left.

Like the worst people on the left Sargon is against free speech and perfectly happy for people he doesn’t like being shut down. His support of Joseph McCarthy alone shows this.

McCarthy was exactly the same as the people who wanted to lock Count Dankula up for making a joke, or the rabid feminists who got the likes of Tim Hunt fired and blacklisted for making a comment they found offensive.

Like them McCarthy got people fired for expressing political views he found offensive, he blacklisted people to the point where they could never work again. Many people’s careers and lives were completely ruined by McCarthy’s actions.

McCarthy was also such a fanatic like many (not all) modern day feminists that he would tar people as the most extreme thing at the drop of a hat. Anyone with even the most mild liberal or left wing views was slimed as a communist threat to America by McCarthy, in much the same way as modern SJWs will tar someone who makes a joke they don’t like, such as Count Dankula as a Nazi!

See here, what the guy who did nothing wrong in Sargon’s opinion was actually like.

Victims of McCarthyism

The Injustice of McCarthyism America

Threat of McCarthyism

But Sargon doesn’t mind, in fact he supports these types of attacks on free speech, because they are against people who don’t share the same beliefs as he does like Count Dankula and Tommy Robinson. With this in mind how can anyone ever take him seriously when he claims to support free speech again?

Furthermore Sargon also famously blasted people who defended Castro on the grounds that they were defending a dictator, yet he constantly tries to downplay Pinochet, another dictator’s disgusting crimes against humanity.

Hey Sargon if you’re reading this, these are some of the horrors Pinochet carried out against his people that you dismiss as “just him getting rid of his communist problem.”

How Pinochet Destroyed A Country

Its tragic and disgusting that the people who suffered under Pinochet are being dismissed as getting what they deserved by Sargon who for all his talk of living in a police state, could never begin to comprehend what victims of Pinochet went through.

Sargon is quite possibly one of the finest examples of the horse shoe effect. A man who claims to be a champion of free speech because he attacks left wing censors, yet praises the likes of Pinochet and Joseph McCarthy and essentially claims its okay to silence, black list, torture and kill communists.

Hey I’m just taking him at his own words. He’s the one that said all Pinochet did was kill 400 communists as though that made it okay. He’s the one who said bring back McCarthy. He’s the one who said that Pinochet just dealt with his communist problem, when he you know had innocent men, women and children tortured, raped, and killed en masse!

Sargon is only not higher on this list because of the good things he has done in the past, but I think that sadly much like Steve Shives before him. He has gone so far down a certain ideological path that he is almost a caricature of his former self.

4/ Ben Shapiro

Image result for ben shapiro

Ben Shapiro’s attitude towards the poor would make Prince John blush.

To start with Ben Shapiro believes that national healthcare is a selfish concept, simply because he is forced to part with some of his wealth to support it.

See here.

Healthcare is not a commodity. Its a matter of life and death. Shapiro is actually happy with someone who say comes from an impoverished background, works a 10 hour shift in a Dickensian call centre for barely above the minimum wage, to not be able to afford a life saving operation, simply so he doesn’t have to part with some of his money.

Private Health Care Killed My Husband

This Is How American Healthcare Kills People

How dare these selfish bastards want life saving healthcare.

Shapiro also has said that those who are poor for their entire lives deserve it simply because they made bad decisions.

5th of UK children in poverty in the UK

Sharp rise in poverty among pensioners and children

Is Shapiro honestly saying that children born into poor families, in impoverished areas aren’t going to have a harder time, than say Scarlett Johanson’s daughter?

And this is before we get to people who are disabled, or ill, who Shapiro would just dismiss as people who didn’t work as hard as he does (quite ironic for a man who has never actually had a real job in his life.)

Poverty rates among disabled

Half of people living in poverty are disabled

Quality of Life for the Disabled in Britain

Disability and poverty a vicious cycle

Right wingers like Ben Shapiro, always try and frame rich vs poor as being so simplistic. In their mind its just lazy bastards at the bottom who didn’t work as hard as those at the top.

They don’t take into account wealth that is inherited, why conditions for those at the bottom are much poorer than they need to be, and worst of all come up with the most ridiculous strawman examples of things like ” a socialist would want to take away JK Rowling’s money and give it to a junkie lowlife on the streets who hasn’t done a days work in their life.”

No one is saying string up Paul McCartney and throw his possessions to the rabble apart from true psychopathic fanatics.

However at the same time there is absolutely no reason why wages cannot be improved for those at the bottom, working hours cannot be lessened, and safety nets such as the welfare state and the NHS can’t be installed. The likes of Shapiro would say that the welfare state is terrible and needs abolished because its completely unfair when people on benefits make more money than those who actually work.

Obviously I’m not denying that is the case with some people on benefits, but you get round that by improving wages and conditions for people who do work, not in taking away a safety net for those who do genuinely need it. Why should someone who is genuinely unable to get a job such as this person here.

Be made to suffer because of benefit cheats? All the while those who still work 12 hour shifts for barely above the minimum wage, are still working in the most Dickensian conditions without any kind of a social life, are still struggling to pay for life saving health care, simply because they didn’t work as hard as Ben Shapiro, apparently.

Also not all of those at the top are there simply because they worked the hardest either. Leaving aside inherited wealth, many of the most powerful companies in western society have reached the top through simply monopolising a brand. I’m not saying that is always the case of course, but still this idea that its all just hard working entrepreneurs who got to the top on their own merit that the likes of Shapiro promote, is laughably naive.

The Microsoft Bully is back

There are clearly problems with the capitalist system. As much as the likes of Sargon and Ben Shapiro would love to us to believe that its perfect and its just lazy bastards who can’t succeed. Ultimately capitalism is a system that allows larger companies to monopolise others, regardless of whether they produce the best product or not, leads to people being exploited for their labour under some of the worst conditions, and leads to the most vulnerable people living in obscene poverty, and not having access to medical care that could save their lives.

Ben Shapiro however dismisses all of these problems because he is at heart a selfish miser who thinks he’s smarter than everyone else and uses the most ridiculous frog logic to try and justify his own cheapness.

How right wing SJWs like Ben Shapiro, Stefan Molyneux, the Academic Agent, and Yaron Brook see themselves.

How the rest of us see them.

3/ Jordan Peterson

Image result for Jordan Peterson

I used to have some respect for Peterson. Like many people I first heard about Peterson when he made a stand against censorship laws in Toronto in 2016. I watched a few more of his videos sporadically and he generally seemed to be okay. I obviously knew he was far more right wing than I was from the start,  but it was only when I started to look deeper into his work that I came to view him as a right wing fanatic.

His hatred of communists and socialists alone exposes his hypocrisy. Peterson has said on many occasions that anyone who says that in the countries where communism failed, they just weren’t doing it right, and that it might work, should be punched in the face so hard it will knock them out. He also said that they should never be forgiven for expressing such views. Of course how intends to make sure they can never be forgiven is anyone’s guess. Blacklisted perhaps? A big red C stamped over their passport?

See here.

Go to roughly twenty minutes in to see his hysterical threat to punch out Marxists.

Oh the irony for a man who first shot to fame for being a champion of free speech to say that if people express a political opinion he doesn’t like then they should be punched out, and never forgiven. Imagine if a leftist said this about conservatives? Ironically Jordan Peterson would be the first person to complain about how they want to destroy our freedom of speech.

I find Peterson’s remarks about communists to be not to dissimilar to those feminists and SJWs make about their opponents. Feminists want to dismiss ALL critics of Islam and feminism as racist, sexists who shouldn’t ever be listened too.

Here Owen Jones goes on about how we shouldn’t listen to “Islamophobic bigots” like Tommy Robinson because they are dangerous and evil people, and automatically dismisses anyone who supports him as a racist.

Owen Jones: Tommy Robinson is a far right bigot

How is that any different to Peterson saying that people who support communism are automatically bad people regardless of their points, and that they shouldn’t be listened to and punched out?

Jordan Peterson’s remarks are also hypocritical in that the whole “they just weren’t doing it right” argument that leftists use to cover up the horrors of communism, is also used by capitalists and right wingers to hand wave the horrors that capitalism is still causing.

In this video Paul Joseph Watson uses the “they just weren’t doing it right argument” for capitalism. Do you want to punch him out Peterson for ignoring things like the Vietnam war, the Iraq war, the Libyan crisis, the Hiroshima bomb, the dark satanic mills, the first world war etc.

The great irony is that capitalism has led to more deaths around the world than communism.

Capitalism is the religion of peace.

Of course I am not trying to say that communism isn’t open to corruption either. I do think that communism and socialism, are more open to fascism as they wish to hand over everything to the government. However capitalism has just as many flaws. Capitalism allows those at the top to dominate through a monopoly and it also ironically leads to globalism. After all a company has to expand and be the best beyond its home country. All the people that the likes of Sargon despise are ironically capitalists, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, who simply want to monopolise their power on a global scale.

Capitalism also leads to a waste of resources and pollution of the environment too, as products are constantly being replaced, not because they have too, but simply so that companies can sell the latest version of their product.

Devastation of Capitalism to our environment

Capitalism has to grow in order to survive, and considering that we don’t live on an infinite planet, with an infinite amount of resources then it doesn’t take a genius to work out that capitalism will eventually collapse.

Finally a total capitalist system also leads to those at the bottom being left out in the cold, as profits are valued more than human lives.

In my opinion a mixed economy is the best solution. There should be safety nets installed for everybody, such as the NHS, and the welfare state. I also support re-nationalisation of the railways, and of resources such as gas and electricity. However I don’t believe in handing over total power to the government. Obviously some things should remain private. Again no one is going to say that a restaurant, or a little corner shop should be owned by the government for instance.

In my opinion a mixed economy though obviously not perfect (no system is.) Is nevertheless the best alternative, and we can see this when we compare how well the United Kingdom flourished under a more mixed economy after World War 2, to how it later crashed and burned under the capitalistic Thatcher government.

China which also utilises a more mixed economy model lifts more people out of poverty than any other country every year.

China has lifted over 800 million people out of poverty in the last 20 years.

China Lifts Over 800 Million People Out of Poverty

Of course this is not to say China is perfect. It is still a dictatorship, and unlike Sargon with Pinochet victims, I would never dream of dismissing the victims of China’s totalitarian regime as deserving it, or just pretend that they don’t exist. However whilst China may lack behind the west in other key areas, in terms of its economic model it is far superior to any capitalist system.

Sadly a mixed economy can never happen because of the foaming at the mouth leftists who refuse to acknowledge any faults with their chosen political systems, and the Jordan Peterson’s on the other side, who similarly want to punch out anyone with any pro socialist or communist ideas. (Again taking him at his own words.)

As far as I’m concerned, if the likes of Jordan Peterson had the social power that the SJWs like Owen Jones have, they’d be no better. Just replace misogynist or Islamophobe with communist, and we’d be in the same situation.

In addition to this Peterson is also a proponent of race realism too.

Now I am not saying that Peterson is a Nazi, but I do think that race realism is a very dangerous path to go down.

To start with I think its nothing more than pseudo, cod science and ultimately an excuse for racist attitudes with no real basis in fact.

The Unwelcome Revival of Race Realism

I am not saying that all cultures are equal. Obviously not, but there are many, more complex reasons for why some cultures lag behind others.

Natural resources, the influence of a particular ideology, social developments etc, all contribute towards the development of a culture overall. For instance my country Scotland has contributed a disproportionately large amount to the world in terms of science, technology and art.

49 wonderful gifts Scotland gave the world

101 inventions Scotland gave the world

The Scots invention of the modern world

Image result for winston churchill scotland quote

The simple race realist analysis as to why the Scots have contributed so much to the world, would be that they are born smarter than everyone else.

In truth however the reason the Scots are over represented compared to other small nations among inventors and scientists, is simply because we were among the first nations to introduce free and universal education for our people.

Compare Scotland to a country where a backwards ideology is in charge such as Wahhabism. Obviously the people born and raised under that culture will most likely not contribute much to humanity as a whole, but again that’s solely because of the culture and society, rather than the genetics of its people. In Scotland’s case, the culture and society ensures everyone can learn how to read or write, whilst in the case of the Wahhabi culture, it strives to keep its people ignorant to survive.

Race realism not only oversimplifies the histories and influences of ideologies on certain cultures, but it also tries to make out that certain races will always be at the bottom no matter what. Indeed Peterson even makes an argument in this video that the people with the lowest IQs (which according to him, means the majority of black people) cannot be trained to ever be in higher paid jobs or positions in society.

Now I’m not saying Peterson advocates for persecution or extermination of black people, or anything extreme like that, but its not hard to see how if Peterson’s ideas of black people being on average, stupid, and never being able to improve as a group became received wisdom. Then we could easily see genuine racists use Peterson’s ideas as justification for actual persecution.

It doesn’t help that in various videos, Peterson refers to those with IQ’s below 85 as a problem that we need to deal with. Again not saying that he wants to kill them, but its not hard to see how that level of thinking of “the Untermensch with low IQ are a drain on society” coupled with the fact that Peterson is trying to associate low IQ with particular ethnic groups, could lead us down a very dangerous path.

Its really just a stepping stone from “these people are on average useless, and a drain” to lets get rid of them. In this respect I find Peterson to be an objectionable and poisonous influence on modern political discourse.

Once again Peterson is also really no different to the SJWs he rallies against. They whip up racial tensions by trying to apply negative characteristics to all or most white people. In their case it’s all white people are racist.

Why are white people so defensive?

Transgender model accused all men of being racist

Peterson is essentially the same, except replace white with black, and racist with stupid.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that there aren’t problems with the black community in places such as New York, but those are once again cultural and societal. The ghetto culture’s influence on the black community for instance needs stomped out pronto. However just simply writing black people off as stupid and never being able, on average to be as productive members of society is as bad as Munroe Bergdo saying that all white people are racist.

Finally Jordan Peterson is also in other areas something of a quack. His ideas about dieting for instance are laughable. Peterson apparently eats nothing but meat and claimed that when he had a single glass of apple cider he didn’t sleep for 25 days.

It amazes me that he actually thinks that people will believe that he went an entire month without sleeping!

Jordan Peterson is really nothing more than a right wing SJW, that the right have adopted as their spokesperson simply because he is a professor and in their minds because they are such class snobs, can therefore give some “legitimacy” to their absurd claims about race realism, socialism etc, more than say Stefan Molyneux.

2/ Stefan Molyneux

Image result for stefan molyneux

Its hard to pick out just one thing wrong with Molyneux. From his revolting attitudes towards women, his sneering, superior attitude towards the poor and underprivileged, to his promotion of race realism.

Molyneux has claimed that most of the problems of the world are caused by women choosing assholes, and that we need to hold these women responsible (of course how he intends to hold these women accountable is anyone’s guess? Personally though I hope we never find out.)

“Women who choose assholes will fucking end this race. They will fucking end this human race, unless we don’t start holding them A-fucking-countable.”

“Look women who choose assholes guarantee child abuse. Women who choose assholes guarantee criminality, sociopathy. All the cold hearted jerks who run the world came out of the vaginas of women who married assholes. And I don’t know how to make the world a better place without holding women accountable for choosing assholes.

“If asshole wasn’t a great reproductive strategy it would have been gone long ago. Women keep that black bastard flame alive. If women choose nice guys over assholes we would have a glorious and peaceful world in one generation.”

“Stop fucking monsters we get a great world. Keep fucking monsters, we get catastrophes, we get war, we get nuclear weapons, we get national debt, we get incarcerations, and prison guards and all the other florid assholes who rule the world.”

Women worship at the feet of the devil and wonder why the world is evil? And then you know what they say? Poor me I’m a victim.”

Molyneux also pushes race realism too, and claims that a truly egalitarian society will never happen because some people are genetically less intelligent. He says that that is a good thing however, as not everyone should be equal and uses such ridiculous arguments as because some people are better Basketball players, then not everyone deserves to be treated equally. He uses a similar argument as to why the poor deserve to be poor too. Basically in Molyneux’s opinion because some people are better at sports, the poor shouldn’t be entitled to life saving healthcare!

Molyneux also tends to generalise those at the bottom as being lazy, fat bums, too stupid to go out and get a high paying job. This coupled with the fact that he feels certain minorities just aren’t on other groups level intellectually, demonstrates a sneering “untermensch” attitude towards certain groups in society.

Of course Molyneux and other race realists like Jordan Peterson will often try and justify saying that some races are less intelligent than others as not being racist, because intelligence isn’t the only value a person can have.

If the likes of Molyneux and Peterson actually believed this, their opinions wouldn’t be so objectionable. (Though race realism is still not only a pointless, but dangerous path to go down, as again, just like the racist SJWs do for white people. You are tarring one group as generally having what is still seen as a negative characteristic. )

Still whilst Molyneux and Peterson may say that intelligence doesn’t matter when discussing race realism, they also talk of how low IQ people are a drain on society. (Molyneux goes as far as to say those at the bottom are stupid, wasters, who deserve to be there.)

Okay Molyneux may defer to certain other ethnic groups as having a higher IQ than whites, but that doesn’t mean he still doesn’t hold blacks and those he regards at the very bottom, as being useless drains on any society they are a part of, which makes him a racist.

Stefan Molyneux is also a massive hypocrite in many of his opinions too. For instance when defending Ayn Rand, he laughs at those who point out Rand’s hypocrisy in going on benefits at the end of her life as not having a rebuttal to her arguments because they are attacking her private life.

Molyneux meanwhile did an entire video attacking Karl Marx’s personal life, mocking the fact that he was unemployed for large sections of his life, the fact that he was an alcoholic, and the fact that he had boils on his arse!

In fact Molyneux outright said that because of Marx’s disastrous personal life we can’t accept any of his teachings. He compared Marx’s teachings to a diet book with a fat man on the cover. So going by Molyneux’s opinion of Marx, the same must be true of Ayn Rand who despite despising socialism, relied on socialised welfare and healthcare in the final years of her life?

Its also ironic that Molyneux despises those who rely on hand outs and benefits, when he ends just about every single one of his videos practically begging for cash

Oh the irony! Maybe you should just get a job Stefan? I mean the free market works for everyone.

1/ Yaron Brook

Image result for yaron brook

Mr iphone himself.

Yaron Brook is digital age, snake oil salesman who travels the world trying to justify being a selfish, miserly, tax dodging, cheat to halls of naive young students. Anything to avoid a real job, eh Yaron?

Yaron tries to justify only caring about himself by actually claiming that selfishness is virtuous because you don’t ask anyone else for help. He also much like Molyneux promotes the naive idea that all of those at the top are just honest businessmen. Again I’m not trying to tar the successful as just being parasites, but surely there is a happy limit between acknowledging that its wrong to let big businesses monopolise basic resources such as gas and electricity, and transport, and not wanting to nationalise every single aspect of society.

Brook’s arguments tend to be very simplistic and hollow. He tends to dismiss ALL leftists under the blanket term of cultural Marxism. To be fair he is far from the only right winger who does this, but still once again its an interesting example of the horse shoe effect. Cultural Marxism is to the right, what the alt right is to the left.

They are both the insidious group that wants to destroy our society that you can dismiss anyone you remotely disagree with as being part of.

Almost all of Yaron’s arguments come down to his iphone. Seriously just watch any of his lectures. No matter what the subject, the NHS, the welfare state, why socialism doesn’t work, why Ayan Rand was an unsung genius etc. It ALL comes back to his iphone.

The great irony is that whilst Brook uses the iphone as proof of why capitalism works, and why private businesses are the best model for success, the iphone was actually created by the state!

Love Your IPhone Thank The US Government

Why The State Is The Hero of Innovation

Look at the phone in your hand and thank the state

Yaron Brook is also the head of the Ayn Rand institute which explains everything really. Ayn Rand is simply philosophy for the selfish. Aside from being a terrible, hack author, Ayn Rand advocated a survival of the fittest attitude to explain inequality in society, dismissing those at the bottom as deserving it for not being as strong or intelligent.

With this in mind it makes perfect sense that Yaron would devote himself to this ideology as its basically a way for him through some cod philosophy to try and justify not paying his taxes.

Yaron Brook for me is the worst right winger on youtube, as all he cares about is himself. With Sargon and Jordan Peterson, as obnoxious as they might be, at the very least I get the feeling that they actually believe what they say. They do believe that they are making the world a better place (as laughable as that may sound.)

However all Yaron cares about is himself and not having to part with a single penny, which again makes him the perfect poster boy or Ayn Rand.

Thanks for reading.

My 30 Favourite Dinosaurs

Image result for charles r knight

Dinosaurs are the most incredible beasts. They have captured the public’s imagination for over 100 years, but whilst all Dinosaurs were in their own way unique and interesting, I think its fair to say that some Dinosaurs are the more interesting than others.

Its no coincidence that mighty killers like Tyrannosaurus Rex, and Spinosaurus and gentle lumbering giants like Bronotsaurus are more popular than say Microceratops.

So I’ve decided in this article to take a look at my top 30 Dinosaurs. I will be looking at just how deadly the meat eaters really were, debunk some famous myths and look at their most famous depictions in popular culture.

As always let me know what you think in the comments below.

30/ Dilophosaurus

Image result for dilophosaurus

Name Meaning: Two Crested Lizard

Size: 23 feet in length, 400 kilograms in weight

Prey: Prosauropods 

Fossil Range: Middle Jurassic

Dilophosaurus was a medium sized carnivore, though it would have been the largest meat eater in its territory.

Originally thought to be nothing more than a scavenger dues to its apparently weak jaws, more recent studies have shown that Dilophosaurus teeth were stronger than previously thought.

It is believed that Dilophosaurus may have been like a lethal reptillian Kangeroo, jumping up and down on its tail, slashing at victims with its massive claws and then biting them.

It is also believed that much like the later Spinosaurus, Dilophosaurus used its claws to scoop up fish.

The two famous crests on the beasts head were very delicate and so would not have been used in any form of defence. Instead they may have been used to help it attract a mate or to cool down in the hotter climates.

In Popular Culture

Dilophosaurus was featured in Michael Crichton’s classic novel Jurassic Park and the  subsequent film adaptation. Here however it was depicted as being much smaller and having the power to spit poison and a massive frill.

In many ways the Jurassic Park version was more terrifying than the real animal.

Sadly whilst this horrifying sequence is one of the most iconic from the original Jurassic Park, the Dilophosaurus, save for a tiny cameo as a hologram in Jurassic World, has yet to appear in any of the sequels.

I’d personally love to see a fight between a pack of Dilophosaurus’ and Velociraptors.

The success of Jurassic Park has meant that whenever Dilophosaurus does appear its often the Jurassic Park version rather than the real one. I can understand in a way, as from a story perspective, the spitting Dilophosaurus is a more unique and terrifying animal.

The actual Dilophosaurus would just be another giant meat eater, except not anywhere near as scary as the T-Rex, Spinosaurus or Allosaurus.

29/ Carnotaurus

Image result for Carnotaurus

Name Meaning: Meat Eating Bull

Size: 29 feet

Prey: Sauropods

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

Carnotaurus was a member of the Abeliosaur family. Famous for its distinctive appearance, Carnotaurus was the only meat eating Dinosaur to have two horns above its eyes.

Its arms were the smallest of any meat eater (even more so than T-Rex.) Recent studies however have shown that it had one of the strongest bites of any non Tyrannosaur Dinosaur.

Its bite was over 6 tons, over twice that of the American Alligator, which has the strongest bite of any terrestrial animal alive today. This would have easily enabled a Carnotaurus to bite an animal the size of a human in half no problem. It may also have been able to partially dislocate its jaws like a snake too.

Carnotaurus was also one of, if not the fastest large meat eater. It is believed that it could run at over 35 mph, which is faster than any animal of a similar size today, such as a Rhino, or an Elephant.

Its horns it seems may have been used more for fighting for mates than for hunting, but whatever the case they were very strong and would have acted as shock absorbers when the animal attacked its victim.

In Popular Culture

Image result for Carnotaurus Disney

Due to its unusual look, Carnotaurus has become quite a popular Dinosaur in films and video games. Undoubtedly its most prominent role was in the 2001 Disney animated movie, Dinosaur, where it was the main antagonist. Apparently the standard Tyrannosaurus was to have been originally used, but the films makers at the last minute decided to switch to a Carnotaurus simply because they thought it looked better.

The Carnotaurus in this movie was obviously made much larger than the real animal.

Carnotaurus has long been associated with the Jurassic Park franchise too. It plays a significant role in the novel of The Lost World, where it is given the ability to camoflauge.

Despite this however it didn’t make an appearance on screen until Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom where it fell victim to a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

28/ Megalosaurus 

Image result for megalosaurus

Name Meaning: Great Lizard

Size: 30 feet

Fossil Range: Middle Jurassic

One of the original giant meat eating Dinosaurs, Megalosaurus was also fittingly one of the first Dinosaurs to ever be discovered. In fact Megalosaurus was discovered long before the name Dinosaur was even conceived.

Somewhat paradoxically however a full skeleton of Megalosaurus has never been found. Still from its remains, scientists can gather a fairly accurate picture of what the beast would have looked like.

Megalosaurus had a somewhat more sturdier build than many other meat eating Dinosaurs, with its arms in particular being much more muscular than those of other large meat eaters.

Still in many ways Megalosaurus is a reminder of just how little we know about the ancient world. We have had fossils of this creature for over 100 years, yet we still have been unable to find a complete skeleton.

In Popular Culture

Image result for crystal palace dinosaurs

Megalosaurus was possibly the first Dinosaur to be referenced in popular culture. In Charles Dickens famous novel, Bleak House he mentions.

“Implacable November weather.  As much mud in the streets as if the waters had but newly retired from the face of the Earth, and would it not be wonderful to meet Megalosaurus, forty feet long or so waddling like an elephantine lizard up Holborn Hill.”

Several statues of Megalosaurus and other giant Dinosaurs like Iquanodon were built in the Crystal palace. However in the century since the models are now considered woefully inaccurate, though they can of course still be appreciated as pieces of art.

Megalosaurus also was listed as being one of the candidates for the giant meat eating Dinosaur that stalks our main heroes in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Lost World. Professor George Challenger mentions that the monster could be either Megalosaurus or Allosaurus, though certain reprints and editions will just choose one Dinosaur.

As larger and more ferocious Dinosaurs were discovered in the ensuing decades such as Allosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex and of course Spinosaurus, then Megalosaurus began to fade from the public’s consciousness, though it does still occasionally feature in some works of fiction such as the Jim Henson series Dinosaurs, where a Megalosaurus is the main character and the video game ARK.

27/ Baryonyx

Image result for baryonyx

Name Meaning: Heavy Claw

Size: 33 feet in length, 2 tons in weight

Diet: Primarily fish, other smaller Dinosaurs, Pterosaurs

Fossil Range: Middle Cretaceous

A medium sized member of the Spinosaur family of Theropods. Baryonyx had a somewhat more unusual appearance than most other meat eating Dinosaurs with its long Crocodile like snout and the massive claws on its hands.

Most experts believe that Baryonyx was like the Dinosaur version of a large grizzly bear, living by lakes, using its claws to scoop up fish and snatching smaller prey. Whilst its diet appears to be mostly fish, there is some evidence that it fed on smaller Dinosaurs, with the remains of a baby Iquanodon, a plant eating Dinosaur having been found in its stomach.

Baryonx would have killed its prey by using its long claws to pin its victims down whilst it bit them. It claws may also have been used to disembowel its victims.

It is possible that Baryonyx may have had a semi aquatic lifestyle and moved on all fours like its much larger cousin Spinosaurus, but there is no concrete evidence for this yet.

In Popular Culture

Related image

Baryonyx’s most notable appearance in popular culture is in the movie Ice Age 3 Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

Set in a lost valley below the ground where Dinosaurs still roam, the Baryoynx who is named Rudy is the main antagonist of the movie, and is shown to be even larger than the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Big Momma, who is actually scared of Rudy.

Ultimately however in tradition with many other Dinosaur movies such as Jurassic Park, the T-Rex makes a heroic appearance at the end and saves the main characters by pushing Rudy off a cliff (though he survives and even cameos in the next entry in the series.)

Baryonyx also recently appeared in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.

26/ Ceratosaurus

Image result for ceratosaurus

Name Meaning: Horn Lizard

Size: 23 feet long

Prey: Smaller herbivores, possibly larger prey in packs.

Fossil Range: Mid to late Jurassic

A small to medium sized meat eater from the Jurassic era. Ceratosaurus is most famous for the single horn on its nose, a unique feature among meat eating Dinosaurs. Whilst many initially assumed that Ceratosaurus used this horn as a weapon, it is now primarily believed to have been used for a mating display.

Small, nimble and agile, but lacking in tremendous power, Ceratosaurus most likely preyed on smaller herbivores or infants of larger creatures like Diplodocus or Brachiosaurus. It is possible that it may have hunted larger prey in packs, but there is very little evidence for this yet. Some experts believe that Ceratosaurus may also have been a pescavore too.

Ceratosaurus shared its environment with Allosaurus, a much larger and more powerful therapod. It has been suggested that these two predators sought different prey in order to avoid conflict with one another.

In Popular Culture

Ceratosaurus has been featured in many movies and pieces of Dinosaur fiction. Due its more distinct appearance it often became the other giant meat eater after Tyrannosaurus and Allosaurus.

Its most notable appearance in films was arguably the Ray Harryhausen movie One Million Years BC where a Ceratosaurus was shown to fight a Triceratops before being gored to death.

Of course just as in other films the Ceratosaurus is shown to be far larger and more powerful. There is no way a real life Ceratosaurus would be able to even hold its own against a Triceratops (not that the two creatures would have ever met of course, but then again One Million Years BC is a fantasy film anyway.)

Some of Harryhausen’s best work. This scene would often be used in documentary’s about Dinosaurs to demonstrate how a Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops would have fought each other.

25/ Velociraptor

Image result for velociraptor

Name Meaning: Swift Robber

Size: 7 feet long

Diet: Mammals, small herbivores, baby Dinosaurs

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

Velociraptor is of course one of the most famous Dinosaurs of all time. In fact its arguably the second most famous Dinosaur after Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The image of Velociraptor in popular culture is quite different to the real animal. Velociraptor is often depicted as a 6 foot tall, scaly man eater, hunting in packs to bring down giant Dinosaurs like Sauropods, and slicing its prey open with is sickle like claw.

In reality however Velociraptor was the size of a Wolf, covered in feathers and its claw was incapable of disembowling, or even penetrating the hard skin of a modern day Crocodile, never mind a giant Sauropod.

It is also not even known for sure if Velociraptor hunted in packs either. Modern day relatives of Dinosaurs, birds and Crocodillians are shown to work together to bring down large prey, so its entirely possible that Velociraptor would have done so too. Still there is actually no more evidence for Velociraptors living in packs than there is for any other meat eating Dinosaurs.

Nevertheless Velociraptor was still a fearsome killer. It preyed on smaller Dinosaurs like the pig sized Protoceratops as well as baby Dinosaurs of giants like Ankylosaurus.

As to how Velociraptor killed its prey, its believed that it stabbed its sickle like claw into its victims throats and slowly choked them to death.

Evidence for this comes from a truly incredible fossil of a Velociraptor and a Proteceratops caught fighting each other. How these two animals were suddenly killed in the middle of fighting no one knows, but it seems likely they were buried under a sand storm which would have helped to preserve the two Dinosaurs as well.

Image result for velociraptor vs protoceratops fossil

You can see how the Raptor in its final moments is thrusting its claw into the herbivores neck to try and escape.

Another way that Velociraptor could have killed its victims would have been to climb to the top of a tree, and glide down like a bird of prey onto its unsuspecting victims back. Its jaws were very strong for an animal of its size and whilst the talons on its feet and hands held its prey down, the Raptor would have eaten them alive!

Velociraptor was also among the most intelligent species of Dinosaurs. It is known that some Dinosaur species, such as Tyrannosaurus Rex were more intelligent than some modern day species of apes, and so in this respect Velociraptor’s intelligence may very well have rivalled among the most intelligent mammals around today.

In Popular Culture

Velociraptor’s most famous appearance in popular culture was of course in Michael Crichton’s novel, and subsequent film adaptation, Jurassic Park.

Following the success of Jurassic Park, Raptors would go on to appear in countless other works of fiction in exactly the same way, as tall, scaly, fiendishly clever, pack hunters, with disembowling claws.

The actual Dinosaur in Crichton’s Jurassic Park was based on Deinonychus, a larger relative of Velociraptors. At the time Crichton was writing, Deinonychus was actually believed to be a member of the Velociraptor family, but this has since been disproven.

Had it not been for this error then Crichton would have most likely used Deinonychus, and Velociraptor, who was discovered as far back as the 1920s would have continued to remain obscure. Thanks to a small error however Velociraptor has now become the second most famous Dinosaur of them all.

24/ Dryptosaurus

Image result for dryptosaurus

Name meaning: Tearing Reptile

Size: 24 feet long, over 1 ton in weight

Prey: Hadrosaurs

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

Dryptosaurus was a member of the Tyrannosaur family of Dinosaurs which obviously included T-Rex. Originally smaller meat eaters, the Tyrannosaurs gradually grew to be the largest and dominant family of meat eating Dinosaurs, out competing other large groups of meat eaters to extinction anywhere they appeared.

Dryptosaurus however was still a relatively smaller Tyrannosaur, though it would have had a stronger bite than any animal alive today, and would have most likely been very fast too. It could possibly have run up to 35 miles per hour, which is faster than modern day carnivores like Tigers and Lions.

What Dryptosaurus lacked in size, it would have made up for in intelligence, speed and power.

In Popular Culture

Image result for Dryptosaurus Charles R Knight

Dryptosaurus was featured in the works of artist Charles R Knight (whose paintings of prehistoric creatures later inspired the works of Willis O’Brien and Ray Harryhausen.)

Knight’s painting depicted Dryptosaurus as an active, fleet footed creature moving in a more bird like stance.

At the time such ideas were not widely held by the scientific community. Dinosaurs were thought of as slow moving, stupid, obsolete creatures destined for extinction. This painting of the two fighting Dryptosaurus however challenged that assumption and would later be influential in reconstructions of similar fleet footed, smaller bird like Dinosaurs such as the Velociraptors in Jurassic Park.

Sadly however despite this Dryptosaurus appears to have been left out of most films, television series and comic books about Dinosaurs. Personally I think it would make a great antagonist as it’s kind of like a combination of a T-Rex and a Raptor.

23/ Centrosaurus

Image result for centrosaurus

Name Meaning: Pointed Lizard

Size: 19 feet long

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Mid Cretaceous

Centrosaurus was a medium sized Ceratopsian Dinosaur. It had a single horn on the tip of its snout and a massive frill. Like most Ceratopsians it was able to defend itself against the majority of meat eating Dinosaurs, but was still preyed upon by Tyrannosaurs, such as Daspletosaurus (believed to be the ancestor of Tyrannosaurus Rex.)

The horn on the Centrosaurus was used for defence, but its frill was soft and weak and so therefore was most likely used to attract mates.

Whilst nowhere near as large or powerful as the more famous Triceratops, there still have been far more skeletons of Centrosaurus discovered than of Triceratops and so it appears to have been a very successful animal.

Despite this however as there were so many similar and closely related species, then trying to figure out which animals were merely closely related and which were actually specimens of Centrosaurus has been somewhat difficult for experts.

Monoclonius for instance was a famous Ceratopsian Dinosaur, often featured in popular culture that was thought to be a relative of Centrosaurus until recently, where it was revealed to just be a specimen of Centrosaurus itself.

In Popular Culture

Centrosaurus has been featured in many documentaries about Dinosaurs including the recent Planet Dinosaur narrated by the late John Hurt.

One memorable sequence shows several Daspletosaurus’ attack a herd of Centrosaurus, chasing them into a lagoon where a Deinosochus (a prehistoric crocodile, 40 feet long) carries several of the helpless herbivores away.

 

Another memorable appearance from the Dinosaur in popular culture was an animated short by Phil Tippet which depicted a Centrosaurus being hunted by a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The Centrosaurus was actually meant to be a Monoclonius, but since Monoclonius is no longer a valid species, then this technically marks an appearance of Centrosaurus.

Tyrannosaurus did not live at the same time as Centrosaurus, (the Centrosaurus is also a bit bigger too, as obviously a real life Tyrannosaurus would snap a Centrosaurus in half effortlessly.) Still this short titled Prehistoric Beast is absolutely superb.

Not only is the animation still top notch, but this scene also develops a very intense and frightening atmosphere leading up to the T-Rex’s appearance. It feels almost like a horror movie!

We see the Rex slowly stalk the herbivore through the dark and unrelenting forest. The Centrosaurus is clearly scared, but can’t see anything and as it starts to frantically try and get away, it ends up not only becoming separated from its herd, but unwittingly stumbling into the Tyrannosaur’s nest, where it sees the mangled remains of the Rex’s previous kill. The Centrosaurus is too scared at the sight to even notice the Rex creeping up on it.

When the two fight you are led to think that the Centrosaurus might just have a chance, the way it is able to stab the Tyrannosaurus in the leg, but when the monster just shrugs it off and corners the Centrosaurus, you know there is nothing the poor herbivore can do, and its a genuinely disturbing moment when the Rex slowly moves in for the kill.

Its a shame that Centrosaurus’ most popular appearances on film and television involve it being ripped to pieces, but at least it usually doesn’t go down without a fight.

22/ Ankylosaurus

Image result for ankylosaurus

Name Meaning: Armoured Lizard

Size: 29 feet, 8 tonnes

Diet plants

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

One of the most iconic Dinosaurs, Ankylosaurus was the largest of the armoured Dinosaurs. Ankylosaurus was also among the last dinosaurs to die out and lived alongside the likes of Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor.

Ankylosaurus was believed to have had the smallest brain of any large Dinosaur, but it of course more than made up for this with its massive body armour. Even its eye lids were said to have been hardened.

Ankylosaurus main weapon however was a massive club on its tail which could swing with a force of over 4 tons.

There is evidence that Anklyosaurus fought with giant meat eating Dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus Rex and Tarbosaurus (with specimens of both carnivores having massive whacks on their legs which were clearly made by Anklyosaurus.)

In addition to this Velociraptors were known to prey on Ankylosaurs young. The massive armour hadn’t grown in yet in baby Ankylosaurs and the much more intelligent raptors would often lure the hapless children away from their parents (possibly through working together in packs, with one Raptor distracting the parents.)

Still despite this Ankylosaurus would have been capable of defending itself from most predators and was one of the most dangerous plant eating Dinosaurs.

In Popular Culture

Ankylosaurus is featured fairly regularly in popular culture, though usually just as a background character.

In the BBC series Walking With Dinosaurs, an Ankylosaurus is cast in a more antagonistic role against a heroic mother Tyrannosaurus who tries to defend her young. Its one of the rare instances of a meat eating Dinosaur being portrayed sympathetically.

Arguably the most famous example of Ankylosaurus in popular culture was in the Godzilla film series. Godzilla’s best friend Angillas, is a mutated Ankylosaurus. Though not the most powerful monster, Angillas is Godzilla’s most loyal sidekick and is always the first by his side.

21/ Oviraptor

Image result for oviraptor

Name Meaning: Egg Thief

Size: 7 feet long

Diet: small mammals, small animals

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

One of the most famous small meat eating Dinosaurs. Oviraptor was originally believed to be a sneaky egg thief as its skull had been found near the remains of several eggs.

More recent studies have shown however that this assumption was unfair as the eggs the Oviraptor skull was near were actually its own, and it was in contrast to what its name would suggest, a protective mother.

Oviraptor was one of the most intelligent meat eating Dinosaurs. It was a warm blooded creature, covered in feathers and extremely fast and agile. Its strong beak would have enabled it to crush the bones of its prey.

In Popular Culture

Oviraptor has most frequently appeared as a sneaky egg thief in popular culture that meets a gruesome end at the ends of a larger more formidable meat eating Dinosaur, much to the audiences satisfaction.

A classic example of this can be found in the 80s documentary Dinosaur by Christopher Reeve. Here the Oviraptor is shown to steal several Hadrosaur eggs, but after being chased away by the angry mother, the Dinosaur takes a wrong turn and ends up in a dark forest, surrounded by two Deinonychus.

The Deinonychus corner the Oviraptor and tear its guts out. The effects for this sequence supplied by Phil Tippet (who later went to work on Jurassic Park) are stunning, but much like with the Monoclonious sequence from his earlier short, Prehistoric Beast, its the atmosphere that gets built up that really makes it effective. I always had nightmares from the scene where the Deinonychus first roars at the Oviraptor, with is red eye piercing through the darkness, it looks almost like a Demon.

This sequence is also notable for being one of the first ever appearances of smaller pack hunting Dinosaurs like Velociraptor in popular culture and may have even inspired similar scenes in Jurassic Park, (with the Documentary predating both the film and book of Jurassic Park.)

20/ Brontosaurs

Image result for brontosaurus

Name Meaning: Thunder Lizard

Size: 72 feet long, 20 tons

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Mid Jurassic

One of the most famous of all Dinosaurs. Brontosaurus for many decades was believed to be an invalid genus of Dinosaur.

When the beast was originally discovered it was believed to be its own separate species, but later studies apparently showed that it was in fact a specimen of an already existing species of sauropod Dinosaur called Apatosaurus. Sadly as a result of this Brontosaurus was deemed invalid.

Despite this however the name Brontosaurus persisted in popular culture. Indeed it ironically became arguably one of the most famous Dinosaur names, and the most famous long necked Dinosaur alongside Diplodocus. However in the last year it was discovered that actually the experts had been correct in their original assertion and Brontosaurus was its own separate genus after all.

The Brontosaurus is Back

I personally always preferred the name Brontosaurus to Apatosaurus so I’m glad its back. Its so much more dynamic sounding and it also has a much better meaning “thunder lizard” as opposed to “deceptive lizard” which is what Apatosaurus means.

In Popular Culture

By far and away one of the most famous Dinosaurs, Brontosaurus has appeared in many films, television series and comic books over the years.

It was a regular of the movies of special effects pioneer Willis O’Brien and his protegee, Ray Harryhausen. It appeared in the 1925 version of The Lost World, King Kong, The Animal Kingdom and One Million Years BC.

Unquestionably its most famous moment in popular culture is at the end of the 1925 version of The Lost World where a Brontosaurus is brought back to London, only to escape and go on a rampage.

This marked the first ever instance on film of a gigantic prehistoric monster rampaging its way through a large modern city. Godzilla, The Beast From 20000 Fathoms, King Kong and the T-Rex from The Lost World Jurassic Park would all follow in the Brontosaurus’ destructive footsteps.

Whilst this is the most famous appearance of Brontosaurus on film, my favourite would have to be in King Kong.

Here the Brontosaurus attacks a group of sailors searching for Kong and Anne Darrow whilst they are crossing a lake. After capsizing their boat, the Brontosaurus kills several of them, before chasing one sailor up a tree who it promptly kills. (Probably not the best place to hide from a giant long necked Dinosaur!)

Whilst the herbivorous Brontosaurus appears to eat the sailors, it is actually just mauling them. Though its still probably a lot more vicious than the actual animal would have been, its nevertheless a brilliant sequence, and I wish more directors had used Brontosaurus as a villain rather than just a large docile grazer. Its massive size, and long serpentine neck that can reach in small places makes it a very effective antagonist.

If any of the sailors were Dinosaur fans then they might have been relieved to see the Brontosaurus at first thinking “oh don’t worry they are friendly” only to get a nasty surprise.

19/ Iguanodon

Image result for iguanodon

Name Meaning: Iguana Tooth

Size: 33 feet, 3 tons

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Early to Mid Cretaceous

One of the first Dinosaurs to be discovered. Iguanodon was a medium sized (by Dinosaur standards) herbivore that was fairly successful and widespread during the period.

Its size would have scared away most predators, but there is evidence that it fell prey to larger killers including Spinosaurids like Baryonx, and Tyrannosaurids like Eotyrannus. The remains of an Iguanodon have been found in the stomach of a Baryonx.

However Iguanodon was no pushover when it came to larger predators either. It had a massive spike on its thumb which it could have used to bring down some of the deadliest killers around.

Image result for Iguanodon thumb

In Popular Culture

Iguanodon was one of the first Dinosaurs to be discovered alongside Megalosaurus, and so was one of the first Dinosaurs to be featured in popular culture. Statues were constructed of the beast outside Crystal Palace. Sadly whilst these models were terrific and still hold up as great pieces of art in their own right. They were completely inaccurate, and depicted Iguanodon as a four legged animal with a horn on its nose.

A more accurate early depiction of the animal was in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Here Iguanodon is depicted as a gentle herbivore that is easily slaughtered and hunted by both Allosaurus and the humans of the plateau.

Iguanodon would go on to appear in the 1925 version of The Lost World where it is killed in a fight with an Allosaurus that tears its throat out.

Iguanodon would come to be phased out of popular culture when other, larger, more deadly herbivores such as Triceratops, Ankylosaurus and Brontosaurus began to be discovered.

Still Iguanodon has continued to appear in a few works in recent times, such as most notably Walking with Dinosaurs where it is slaughtered by a pack of vicious Utahraptors.

I think its a shame that Iguanodon’s most famous appearances in popular culture, all involve it getting ripped apart by killers like Allosaurus, Giganotosaurus and Utahraptor. It would be nice to see it get a chance to use its spikey thumb at least once on the big screen.

18/ Archaeopteryx

Image result for archaeopteryx dinosaur

Name Meaning: Old Wing

Size: 1 foot 8 inches in length

Diet: Small mammals and insects

Fossil Range: Mid Jurassic

A very special animal in the history of Paleontology. Archaeopteryx is a missing link between Dinosaurs and Birds.

At the time of its discovery the idea that small, feathery, warm bloodied birds could have descended from giant scaly meat eating Dinosaurs would have seemed ridiculous, but Arechaeopteryx clearly bore many similarities with both modern birds and Dinosaurs.

It had claws on its hands, a sickle like claw on its foot (similar to Dinosaurs such as Velociraptor.) It also had a mouth full of teeth too rather than a beak. Still despite this Archeaoptryx was covered in feathers, and had hollow bones just like a modern day bird. (Prior to the discovery of Archeaoptryx, hollow bones and feathers were believed to be features unique only to birds.)

Of course the debate would rage on for many decades after Archeaoptryx’s discovery, but still this small feathered Dinosaur begun the debate, and eventually after the discovery of more transitional fossils, as well as the discovery of many more strong similarities between birds and Dinosaurs, it is now accepted that birds not only evolved from Dinosaurs, but that they are classed as a sub group of Dinosaur. Thus ironically Dinosaurs aren’t extinct. They are all around us today.

17/ Tarbosaurus

Image result for tarbosaurus

Name Meaning: Alarming Reptile

Size: 39 feet long, 8 tons

Diet: Hadrosaurs, Ceratopsians, Anklyosaurs, Sauropods

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

Tarbosaurus was a member of the Tyrannosaur family. It was the second largest member of the family after Tyrannosaurus Rex itself.

Slight smaller than T-Rex, Tarbosaurus was nevertheless the apex predator in its environment. It has a stronger bite than the overwhelming majority of large meat eating Dinosaurs.

The similarities between Tarbosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex are so great that many believed that Tarbosaurus was actually just an Asian representative of Tyrannosaurus Rex itself!

In Popular Culture

Tarbosaurus has been featured a few documentary’s over the years such as Chased by Dinosaurs, but sadly it was almost always left out of any fictional works about Dinosaurs.

In 2012 however, Tarbosaurus finally landed a starring role in the South Korean film the Dino King, which follows a young Tarbosaurus whose family are killed by a Tyrannosaurus Rex named One Eye. One Eye continues to stalk Speckles throughout the rest of the movie, before their final showdown (see above). Its kind of like The Land Before Time, except with a Tarbosaurus taking the place of Littlefoot. Its a decent, if somewhat surreal Dinosaur movie.

16/ Stenonychosaurus

Related image

Name Meaning: Narrow Claw Lizard

Size: 6 feet long

Diet: Small mammals, dinosaurs 

Fossil Range: Late Creteceous 

Stenonychosaurus was a small, bird like Dinosaur that may have hunted in packs. It was incredibly fast and agile and had large, sickle like claws on its hands and feet. Its teeth however were relatively small and weak, and many experts believe that it may have been an omnivore.

Stenonychosaurus for many decades much like Brontosaurus was believed to be an invalid genus, with Phil Currie in 1987 reassigning Stenonychosaurus as part of the genus Troodon.

However in 2017 it was recognised as its own separate species, though still as a member of the Troodontid family.

Stenonychosaurus was also believed to be among the smartest of all Dinosaurs, with the Troodontids having the largest brain to body ratios of any Dinosaur species. Its not known for sure how intelligent the animals were, but recent studies have shown that Tyrannosaurus Rex may have been smarter than a Chimpanzee, in which case Troodontod’s intelligence may very well have been on a par with some of the most intelligent animals around today.

In Popular Culture

The paleontologist Dale Russell published a thought experiment in 1982 where he argued it was possible that had Dinosaurs not been driven to extinction then small meat eaters like Stenonychosaurus (then thought to be Troodon,) would have eventually evolved into a humanoid like life form, which Dale dubbed “Dinosauroid.”

The Dinosauroid Dale proposed would have communicated in bird song, and would have fed its young through regurtitation like many modern birds.

Sadly Russell’s reputation would suffer somewhat as a result of this outlandish theory, even though it was just intended to be a thought experiment. Still it is an interesting idea nonetheless that has always fascinated me.

The idea of Dinosaurs evolving into humans had actually been featured in fiction before Russell’s thought experiment.

In the classic British sci fi comic, Dan Dare, the main villains, Venusians called the Treens, were said to have evolved from Dinosaur like aliens. Dan Dare’s version of Venus (which was a planet with an earth like atmosphere, teeming with life) was split into two sections through a naturally occurring phenomenon called the flame belt.

On the cooler side of the planet, mammal like life forms evolved, including a race of human like aliens called Therons. On the warmer side of the planet however, Dinosaur like reptiles evolved to become the dominant life form. (Dan even refers to one of them as a Triceratops.) The Treens meanwhile evolved from small meat eating Dinosaurs, and eventually became the dominant life forms on their planet.

The Treens even look like Dale Russell’s Dinosauroid, with their green skins, bald heads, and beak like mouths. However any similarities between the two is coincidental as Dan Dare was never popular in America where Russell was born and raised.

Image result for treens dan dareImage result for Dinosauroid

Maybe somewhere across the universe there is a planet where Dinosauroid’s like the Treens are the dominant life forms?

15/ Therizinosaurus

Image result for therizinosaurus

Name Meaning: Scythe Lizard

Size: 33 feet

Diet: plants

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

A very strange looking plant eating Dinosaur that looked like a cross between Wolverine and a pigeon.

The three massive claws on Therinzinosaurus forearms were the largest ever to exist in any animal (topping even the legendary Spinosaurus’ killing claws.) It is not known exactly what they were for. Many believed that they were primarily used to fend off large predators, but they may have ironically, primarily been used for the mundane task of scrapping leaves off of branches for it to eat.

14/ Gorgosaurus

Image result for gorgosaurus

Name Meaning: Dreadful Lizard

Size: 30 feet long, 2 tons

Diet: Hadrosaurs, Ceratopsians 

Fossil Range: Mid Cretaceous

Gorgosaurus was a medium sized member of the Tyrannosaur family. Interestingly enough it shared its environment with another large Tyrannosaur, Daspletosaurus (the ancestor of Tyrannosaurus Rex.)

The two large predators however did not compete as they hunted different types of herbivores. Daspletosaurus, that was more heavily built and had stronger jaws, hunted the more heavily armoured Dinosaurs such as the Anklyosaurs and Ceratopsians, whilst the more fleet footed Gorgosaurus hunted the faster Hadrosaurs.

More specimens of Gorgosaurus have been found than of any other Tyrannosaur and so we actually know more about Gorgosaurus than almost any other meat eater including Tyrannosaurus Rex itself.

In Popular Culture

Gorgosaurus appears as the main antagonist in the CGI movie, Walking with Dinosaurs. Based on the popular BBC television series of the same name. This film however was more of a fantasy movie akin to the famous Land Before Time film series, as it featured Dinosaurs being able to talk.

13/ Stegosaurus

Image result for Stegosaurus

Name meaning: Roof Lizard

Size: 29 feet long, 7 tons

Diet: Plants

Fossil range: Mid Jurassic

One of the most famous of all Dinosaurs. Stegosaurus was a relatively simple animal, with one of the smallest brains of any known Dinosaur species. At one point it was actually believed that Stegosaurus’ brain was so small that it needed a second brain, near the back of its legs to control the second half of its body! However subsequent studies have shown that it not only didn’t have a second brain, but that its brain was larger than previously believed, though it was still one of the smallest of any large Dinosaur.

Nevertheless despite it’s limited intelligence, Stegosaurus was also one of the most successful Dinosaur species, lasting for over 10 million years.

Stegosaurus whilst a large herbivore, was not big enough to scare off the massive predators it lived alongside such as Allosaurus. Instead it relied on the 4 massive spikes on its tail to ward off predators. Each spike was up to three feet long and made of solid bone.

Evidence shows that Stegosaurus and Allosaurus regularly came into conflict with one another, with bite marks made by Allosaurus, that have healed having been found on Stegosaurus skeletons, and Stegosaurus spike marks that have healed being found on Allosaurus skeletons.

Stegosaurus has always been one of my favourite Dinosaurs because of its truly spectacular appearance. The reason for the massive plates along its back have been a source of debate among experts with some arguing that they were used as armour, similar to the later Anklyosaurus, whilst others have argued that they may have simply been used to regulate the animals body temperature. Finally another theory is that the plates were used to ward off attackers like Allosaurus

In Popular Culture

Stegosaurus is one of the most famous and beloved Dinosaurs. It has appeared in some of the earliest fictional works about Dinosaurs and much like Tyrannosaurus Rex, Allosaurus and Triceratops it has continued to be featured regularly since.

Stegosaurus appears in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel The Lost World, being the first Dinosaur that Challenger discovers on the plateau. It went on to appear in the 1925 version, albeit in a reduced role.

Stegosaurus also appeared in Fantasia in the iconic Rite of Springs passage. Here it is hunted by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Following this Tyrannosaurus and Stegosaurus would often be depicted as rivals, despite the fact that Stegosaurus died out millions of years before Tyrannosaurus. There is in fact a greater distance between Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus, than there is between humanity and Tyrannosaurus.

The predatory Dinosaur in this sequence was intended to be Tyrannosaurus, despite having three fingers, which Allosaurus, Stegosaurus’ actual predator had. This was apparently because Walt Disney thought T-Rex looked better with three fingers.

Stegosaurus would also go on to appear in the likes of Walking with Dinosaurs and the Jurassic Park franchise where it famously attacks Julianne Moore when she gets too close to one of its children.

The Stegosaurus here is depicted as much larger than the real animal.

12/ Styracosaurus

Image result for styracosaurus

Name Meaning: Spiked Lizard

Size: 18 feet long, 3 tons

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

An iconic Ceratopsian Dinosaur, Styracosaurus is known from many fossil fragments, and was distinguished by the massive horns on the top of its frill.

Its not known what the true purpose of its somewhat more extravagant head was. Whilst many believe that its frill and horns were used for defence, others believe that it may have used them to help distinguish one another, or for mating. Its head was so disproportionately large that it may have made Styracosaurus look bigger overall than it was.

Still most experts agree however that Styracosaurus much like its larger relative Triceratops simply used its frill for defence. Styracosaurus shared its environment with many large predators such as Albertosaurus, a member of the Tyrannosaur family.

There is evidence that Styracosaurus would also have lived in herds for further protection.

11/ Carcharodontosaurus

Image result for carcharodontosaurus

Name Meaning: Shark Tooth Lizard

Size: 44 feet long, 15 tons

Diet: Sauropods

Fossil Range: Mid Cretaceous

One of the largest meat eaters ever to walk the earth, Carcharodontosaurus, was a member of the Allosaur family and may very well have been larger than Tyrannosaurus Rex itself. Like all Allosaurs it combined tremendous speed with incredible strength. It may despite its massive size have been able to run at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. It had a very powerful bite, though not as strong as Tyrannosaurus Rex, Carcharodontosaurus may also have used its jaws like hatchet in a similar fashion to Allosaurus.

Carcharodontosaurus lived alongside another, even bigger carnivore, Spinosaurus. Carcharodontosaurus and Spinosaurus most likely would not have come into conflict with one another very often. Spinosaurus was a semi aquatic animal that would have preyed on marine life and Dinosaurs straying close to the river, whilst Carcharodontosaurus meanwhile would have hunted Sauropods on the open plains and the forest.

Large predators today also generally tend to avoid each other in case of injury, so its reasonable to assume that Carcharodontosaurus and Spinosaurus would have been the same.

However there is evidence that the two did occasionally fight one another, with a Carcharodontosaurus bite mark having been found on the sail of a Spinosaurus.

As to which of these two apex predators would have been likely to win in a fight, well that’s like saying who would win in a fight between a Crocodile and a Lion. Both are more than capable of killing one another. Spinosaurus was the larger predator, but Carcharodontosaurus had a larger bite, and was faster than Spinosaurus too.

It would depend on circumstances, the age and health of both Dinosaurs, the environment (in the forest Carcharodontosaurus would have had the advantage, whilst by the water, Spinosaurus would have the obvious advantage) and like most things, luck.

Spinosaurus may have never met Tyrannosaurus Rex, (as the two lived several million years and continents apart) but it would have at least on occasion have duelled with an even bigger meat eating Dinosaur.

10/ Brachiosaurus

Image result for brachiosaurus

Name Meaning: Arm Lizard.

Size: 85 feet long, over 70 tons

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Mid to Late Jurassic

One of the most spectacular animals ever to live on the planet. Brachiosaurus was one of the largest sauropods standing over 40 feet tall.

Brachiosaurus was able to reach the very tops of trees with its long neck. It may have been a herding animal, but its massive size would have rendered it immune to most predators. The massive crest on its head was most likely used to attract a mate or perhaps regulate body temperature.

In Popular Culture

Brachiosaurus’ most famous depiction in popular culture is in Jurassic Park where it is the first Dinosaur to be seen in its entirety. Its hard to imagine the impact this scene had on audiences in 1993. In the two decades since the most famous moments from Jurassic Park have become so familiar to modern audiences, that even people who haven’t seen the film will still have undoubtedly seen these sequences spoofed or replicated in other works since.

Still this scene holds up as a very special moment in cinema history as it introduces us to the spectacular visuals (which still surpass most modern attempts) that brought these wonderful creatures to life.

Surprisingly however despite its distinctive appearance and popularity, Brachiosaurus has often been sidelined in popular culture for other sauropods such as Brontosaurus and Diplodocus. Its made a few other appearances such as in Walking with Dinosaurs (where again it only makes a cameo.)

Sadly however despite its iconic status, Brachiosaurus is rather underutilised.

9/ Pachycephalosaurus

Image result for Pachycephalosaurus

Name Meaning: Head Lizard

Size: 14 feet long

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

A more unusual looking Dinosaur, Pachycephalosaurus was also one of the last Dinosaurs to die out. It would have lived alongside other famous Dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus Rex, Deinonychus and Triceratops.

Pachycephalosaurus is only known from a few skull fragments, but close study of other similar Dinosaur species have ultimately allowed experts to build a reasonable picture of how the animal would have behaved.

Pachycephalosaurus had a massive dome on the top of its head, that experts believe it may have used to ram rivals, like a modern day bighorn sheep. It may also have used this tactic to defend itself against smaller predatory Dinosaurs such as Raptors and Dromeosaurs.

Some experts however have disputed that they would have rammed each other head on, and may have instead charged at their victims side or underbelly instead.

In Popular Culture

Pacycephalosaurus despite its unique appearance, is sadly often left out of most works about Dinosaurs. However it did make a memorable appearance in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, where it is shown to be powerful enough to ram a man through two windows.

8/ Utahraptor

Image result for utahraptor

Name Meaning: Utah’s Predator

Size: 19 Feet Long

Diet: Iguanodon’s and Therenziosaurs

Fossil Range: Early Cretaceous

Utahraptor was a large Dromeosaurid bigger than a Polar Bear. It was closely related to other famous killers such as Deinonychus and Velociraptor (as well as modern day birds.)

Utahraptor may have been a pack hunter, in which case it would have been able to bring down the largest herbivores of its time. Even if it hunted on its own, it still would have been more than capable of bringing down prey as big as Iguanodon. Utahraptor was not the fastest of the raptors, so it would it may have relied on ambush tactics to catch smaller prey instead.

Utahraptor would have killed larger herbivores by jumping onto them, using its sickle like claw to hold onto them, and then climb its preys backs, whilst it tore chunks of flesh off with its powerful jaws.

It is believed that Deinonychus, a much smaller Dromeosaur had a bite stronger than a modern day Crocodile, so a Utahraptors bite would like have been over twice as strong.

Like all Dromeosaurs, Utahraptor would most likely have been covered in feathers too.

In Popular Culture

The first fragments of Utahraptor were discovered in 1975, but it wouldn’t be until after Jurassic Park in the 90s that they would be given greater attention and the beast was actually named.

Utahraptor for a while became one of the most popular Dinosaurs, as it was actually closer to the Velociraptors of Jurassic Park, than the actual Velociraptors were. In truth it was actually far larger and more powerful than the Raptors of Jurassic Park and may even have been as smart too, well as smart as the Raptors of the first film, not the third.

Ultimately however the name Velociraptor had more staying power and so most standard raptors in popular culture are still called Velociraptor. Still Utahraptor has gone on to make a few prominent appearances in popular culture nevertheless.

In Walking with Dinosaurs a pack of Utahraptors are shown to hunt an Iguanodon. Of course the fact that the episode is set in Europe makes it a little odd that there are Utahraptors at all. (Key’s in the name UTAHraptor) still its a thrilling sequence and definitely the best reconstruction of Raptors hunting other Dinosaurs I’ve ever seen.

Utahraptor was also the star of the novel Raptor Bed by paleontologist Bob Bakker which tells the story of a female Utahraptor trying to survive after her pack has been killed off.

Finally Utahraptor also appeared in Primeval New World where it was shown to battle a Pteranodon.

Raptors also appeared in several episodes of the earlier British version of Primeval. However they were never identified. They did match Utahraptor in terms of size, but it was never stated for sure whether they were Utahraptors, Deinonychus’ or even just oversized Velociraptors like in Jurassic Park.

Still since they matched Utahraptor in size then what the hell. Here’s to the Primeval Raptors, my favourite Raptors after the Jurassic Park ones. In Primeval the Raptors were often ironically cast in heroic roles, albeit unintentionally, such as when a Raptor kills Emily’s abusive husband, or in season 3 when a Raptor kills Helen Cutter and ironically saves the human race in the process.

7/ Diplodocus

Image result for diplodocus

Name Meaning: Double Beam

Size: Over 100 tons, 105 feet long

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Mid to Late Jurassic

Diplodocus was a sauropod and possibly the longest Dinosaur of all time. The most extreme estimates for Diplodocus put its top length at 175 feet long!

Diplodocus was not like Brachiosaurus in that it could not raise its neck to feed on the very tops of trees and instead would have primarily browsed low level vegetation.

The Diplodocus’ could live for over 100 years, and at full size would have been too big for most predators, though it is believed that the likes of Allosaurus at the very least preyed on their young.

Like many Sauropods, Diplodocus was most likely a herding animal. It is also known to have swallowed stones to help it digest its food too.

In Popular Culture

One of the most famous Sauropods, Diplodocus has appeared in numerous films, books and documentaries about Dinosaurs over the decades, including Walking with Dinosaurs.

A Diplodocus specimen named Dippy stood for over 100 years as star attraction in the British museum. When the decision was made to replace it in 2017 with a Blue Whale named Hope, there was a massive outcry from the public, but Dippy has since gone on tour around the world.

6/ Triceratops

Image result for triceratops

Name Meaning: Three Horned Face

Size: 12 tons, 35 feet long

Diet: Plants

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

The largest and most famous of the Ceratopsian Dinosaurs. Triceratops was also among the last Dinosaurs to go extinct.

Triceratops’ massive frill was incredibly thick and strong compared to those of other Ceratopsians, whilst the two horns above its eyes were over 8 feet long.

Triceratops naturally used its horns and frill to defend itself from Tyrannosaurus Rex, its main predator.  Contrary to popular belief, Triceratops did not charge at its victim like a Rhino. Whilst the horns were strong, its beak was quite fragile and would have broken had it charged head on.

Triceratops instead would have gored its victims to death by swinging its head from side to side. Whilst Triceratops did fall victim to Tyrannosaurus Rex, it would have been too big and powerful for the Dromeosaurs it lived alongside. Triceratops could not run very fast, and it wasn’t the smartest animal, so it needed to be large and powerful.

However whilst Triceratop’s horns and frill were primarily used to fight off giant predators, experts believe that they may also have been used by males to wrestle with one another over a mate, and for display.

In Popular Culture

Triceratops is one of the most famous Dinosaurs. In popular culture it is almost always depicted as the archenemy of Tyrannosaurus Rex. Unlike other Dinosaur feuds on screen however such as T-Rex and Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops actually did live alongside one another, and regularly fought each other.

Fossil evidence shows that T-Rex fought Triceratops head on just like the movies too (though undoubtedly it would have ambushed Triceratops in many instances, with Triceratops frill blocking off its vision behind, allowing the much faster T-Rex to sneak up on it.)

Still we know that T-Rex was willing to bite at the horns and frill of its enemy, as one Triceratops skeleton has Tyrannosaur bite marks on its frill that have healed, with one of the Triceratops’ horns having bitten in half by the Tyrannosaur too. In addition to this horn marks from Triceratops that have healed have been found on Tyrannosaur skeletons too.

Triceratops has often been depicted battling other large predators such as Allosaurus and Ceratosaurus in popular culture too, though neither of these animals lived beside it.

Among Triceratops’ most notable film appearances include The Ghost of Slumber Mountain, possibly the first ever Dinosaur film, with the effects (and story) supplied by Willis O’Brien, Triceratops would later go on to appear in his 1925 version of The Lost World as well.

Triceratops also appeared in Ray Harryhausen’s iconic film One Million Years BC, where for once it is shown to triumph over its large meat eating rival, in this case a Ceratosaurus, that it gores to death. This fight sequence was arguably Harryhausens most famous moment, alongside his legendary Skeleton fight, and would go on to appear in numerous Documentary’s over the years as an example of how Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops may have fought one another.

A baby Triceratops named Cera also appeared as one of the main characters in the iconic Land Before Time series, whilst the animal also made a memorable appearance in the first Jurassic Park movie where it prompted the creation of one of Jeff Goldblum’s most notorious memes.

Image result for that is one big pile

Jeff Goldblum has to have inspired more memes than any other actor from this film alone. Practically every line out of his mouth in the original Jurassic Park has become a meme.

Triceratops would also go on to appear in all of the sequels too, with its largest role being in The Lost World Jurassic Park.

Sadly however its never been shown on screen with its real life nemesis Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Jurassic Park movies yet.

5/ Giganotosaurus

Image result for giganotosaurus

Name Meaning: Giant Southern Lizard

Size: 45 feet long, 13 tons

Diet: Sauropods, Iguanodon

Fossil Range: Early to Mid Cretaceous

Giganotosaurus was an Allosaur, and believed to be one of the biggest meat eating Dinosaurs of all time.

Giganotosaurus broke Tyrannosaurus’ record as the largest land based predator that it had held for over 90 years, but Giganotosaurus was only slightly larger than T-Rex however, and since its discovery then Spinosaurus, which is a good bit bigger than both has now taken the title for the worlds largest meat eating Dinosaur.

Giganotosaurus was the apex predator in its region. Having a bite impact of over 6 tons, and being able to run at over 30 miles per hour, it was a surprisingly nimble creature, considering its size.

Giganotosaurus would have preyed on Argentinosaurus, possibly among the largest land animals of all time, though smaller herbivores such as Iguanodon would have probably been more frequent targets. There is some evidence that Giganotosaurus and other Allosaurs may have lived together in herds which would have helped them bring down the biggest prey, but this is not conclusive.

In Popular Culture

Giganotosaurus quickly made a huge impression as the Dinosaur bigger than T-Rex and has appeared in many films and television series, though its place as the biggest meat eater of all time was quickly usurped by Spinosaurus in 2006.

Still Giganotosaurus has made a few noteworthy appearances in popular culture over the years. In The Land Before Time 5, The Mysterious Island, Giganotosaurus appears as the main antagonist, where it is eventually defeated by the heroic Tyrannosaur, Chompers father.

Giganotosaurus also appeared in Primeval, where it was dubbed “G-Rex”. This episode is definitely one of my favourites. The G-Rex looks absolutely spectacular and the script manages to demonstrate both the Dinosaurs speed and strength perfectly.

Giganotosaurus also appears in the video game ARK. Here it is actually depicted as being considerably larger than both Tyrannosaurus and Spinosaurus.

4/ Deinonychus

Image result for Deinonychus

Name Meaning: Terrible Claw

Size: 12 feet long

Diet: Small Mammals, and Dinosaurs

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

Deinonychus was a medium sized Dromeosaur. Once believed to have been a pack hunter, capable of taking down giant Dinosaurs such as Tenontosaurus, many experts now think Deinonychus was a more solitary killer.

It was still a vicious predator with powerful jaws, incredible speed and large claws on its hands and feet. Like many other Dromeosaurs, Deinonychus had a massive sickle like claw on its foot, whilst it had a bite force of over 1 ton, stronger than any Mammalian carnivore.

Much like Velociraptor it is believed that Deininonychus would have killed its victims by scaling tall trees, and then gliding down onto its preys backs, where its claws would hold them down, whilst it literally ate them alive with its jaws. It would also have used its sickle like claw to pierce its victims necks.

Deinonychus is one of the most important Dinosaurs in the history of Palaeontology. John Ostrom’s extensive study of Deinonychus in the 1960s led to what has been dubbed the Dinosaur renaissance in the 1970s.

Ostrom concluded that some Dinosaurs were warm blooded, agile, fast and intelligent creatures. He also revived the old argument that birds evolved from small meat eating Dinosaurs.

Ostrom’s ideas were controversial at first, but they have now become accepted. Prior to Ostrom’s studies of Deinonychus, Dinosaurs were thought of as slow moving, slow witted, sluggish reptiles, but Deinonychus paved the way for the depiction of clever, fast moving, Dinosaurs in both science and popular culture.

In Popular Culture

Following the Dinosaur Renaissance, Deinonychus would go on to become quite popular for many years before ultimately being usurped by Velociraptor.

It featured in works such as the card series Dinosaur Attack, the Marvel comic book Devil Dinosaur, and the Christopher Reeve documentary, Dinosaur.

Michael Crichton also intended to use Deinonychus in his classic novel, Jurassic Park as the main predatory Dinosaur. However at the last minute he decided to change it to Velociraptor, as he felt it had a better name, and at that point Deinonychus was believed to be a member of the Velociraptor family (which is explicitly stated in the novel, which technically does make the Dinosaurs of the novel Deinonychus anyway.)

However in the film adaptation they were just named Velociraptor, (despite being closer in size and behaviour to Deinonychus. )

Thus Velociraptor shot to fame, but in actual fact the classic Raptor image in films, television and comic books is really of Deinonychus.

Still most Raptors are often referred to as Velociraptors, and Utahraptors instead.

3/ Allosaurus

Image result for Allosaurus

Name Meaning: Odd Lizard

Size: 35 feet long, 3 tons

Diet: Sauropods, Stegosaurs, Pterosaurs, Smaller Dinosaurs and Mammals.

Fossil Range: Mid to Late Jurassic

The lion of the Jurassic. Allosaurus was a large, very fast and successful predator that was capable of killing herbivores many times its own size.

Allosaurus may have been able to run at speeds of 35 miles per hour. It could also jump over 2 meters in the air, and had massive claws on its hands which it could use to grab onto its prey.

When hunting large Sauropods, Allosaurus would have jumped through the air and scaled its victims using the claws on its hands and feet, as seen here in Walking with Dinosaurs.

Allosaurus was an incredibly durable animal too, with one specimen of a male sub adult Allosaurus having 19 severe injuries almost all of which had healed.

Allosaurus did not have strong jaws however. In fact its bite force was weaker than that of many modern day predators such as Leopards.

Instead it is believed that Allosaurus used its head like a hatchet against its enemies. Allosaurus could open its jaws wider than any other Dinosaur, and its skull was among the strongest and most reinforced of any theropod too.

This method would have allowed Allosaurus to cleave off greater sections of flesh from its prey than most other theropods.

Some experts however have called the hatchet method into question. A more recent study suggested that Allosaurus may have opened its mouth extra wide to give it a powerful bite, in place of strong jaw muscles.

Whatever the truth, Allosaurus was both a powerful and effective predator that specialised in taking down some of the largest creatures ever to walk the earth, and dominated the other larger carnivores it lived with such as Ceratosaurus.

Allosaurus is one of the most famous Dinosaurs. Though not quite as popular as Tyrannosaurus, in many ways it has come to represent the quintessential giant meat eater after T-Rex, even above much larger killers such as Spinosaurus and Giganotosaurus.

Allosaurus appeared as the dominant carnivore in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel The Lost World, and the later 1925 adaptation. Though a Tyrannosaurus also appears in the 1925 version, it is only in a single sequence.

Allosaurus also appeared as the main (and sole) Dinosaur in The Beast From Hollow Mountain, a rare fusion of the Western and Dinosaur genres.

Beast From Hollow Mountain’s effects were supplied by Willis O’Brien who also supplied the effects for King Kong and the original 1925 version of The Lost World. O’Brien also came up with the concept too.

The later Dinosaur Western, The Valley of the Gwangi, also featured an Allosaurus as the titular Dinosaur, though actually according to Ray Harryhausen, who supplied the films effects, Gwangi was intended to be a hybrid of Tyrannosaurus and Allosaurus which he dubbed “Tyrannosaurus Al.”

Allosaurus also appeared in One Million Years BC where it is shown to attack a tribe of Cavemen. Here it is made much smaller and weaker than an actual Allosaurus as Ray Harryhausen himself said that a real Allosaurus would have destroyed the village with no effort.

I know the uploader got it wrong and called it a Velociraptor, but its an Allosaurus.

A female Allosaurus named Big Alice also appears as a major, recurring antagonist in the 1970s tv series, The Land of the Lost.

Another major appearance of Allosaurus is in Walking with Dinosaurs. Not only does it appear in the second episode, but it is also the focus of the Christmas special called The Ballad of Big Al which details the life of a young male Allosaurus.

Allosaurus also appeared in the 2001 adaptation of The Lost World, made my the same team behind Walking with Dinosaurs and later Primeval.

Interestingly enough despite Allosaurus’ popularity, it wasn’t until the 5th entry in the Jurassic Park series that Allosaurus finally made an appearance.

2/ Spinosaurus

Image result for spinosaurus

Name Meaning: Spine Lizard

Size: 59 feet long, 23 tons

Diet: Fish, Iguanodons, Large and Small Dinosaurs, Pterosaurs

Fossil Range: Early to Mid Cretaceous

The largest land based predator ever to live on the planet, Spinosaurus may actually have been semi aquatic and may also have walked on all fours. There is much that is still not known about this predator, with the causes of its famous sail still being a subject of debate, though most experts believe that sail was used either to regulate body temperature or to attract a mate.

Spinosaurus had long thin jaws, and whilst its bite was stronger than any modern day predator, it was still weaker than many other large meat eating Dinosaurs. Still Spinosaurus had massive claws on its hands, bigger than the meat hooks in a slaughter house. Biomechanical reconstructions of Spinosaurus’ claws have shown that they would have been powerful enough to shred through solid bone and steel.

Spinosaurus would have easily been able to disembowel the largest herbivores it shared its habitat with. Despite this however many experts believe that Spinosaurus would have preyed primarily on marine life. Though some have knocked it as not being as impressive as other predators because of this, Spinosaurus would have regularly preyed on sharks and fish, larger and more powerful than modern day Great Whites.

Spinosaurus was an apex predator, but it is known that it shared its environment with two other massive carnivores, Carcharcodontosaurus and a massive crocodile named Sarcosuchus. Whilst all three carnivores would have most likely avoided each other most of the time, there is some evidence that all three did fight one another on occasion.

In Popular Culture

Spinosaurus remained a relatively obscure Dinosaur for decades until it literally shot to fame overnight thanks to the 2001 movie Jurassic Park 3, where it was cast as the main antagonist. Though controversial, the movie helped Spinosaurus take Giganotosaurus’ place as the meat eating Dinosaur bigger than the T-Rex. This position was really cemented when its true size was finally discovered in 2006.

Since then Spinosaurus has gone on to appear in numerous, films, comic books and television series including Dinosaur Planet, ARK, the Transformers film series and Primeval.

Its not hard to see why Spinosaurus has become so popular. Not only is it officially the biggest of all meat eating Dinosaurs, but its also among the most spectacular looking too. With its crocodile like head, and massive sail, its almost looks like a Dragon from Medeval mythology.

1/ Tyrannosaurus Rex

Image result for Tyrannosaurus Rex

Name Meaning: Tyrant Lizard King

Size: 40 feet long, 10 tons

Diet: Hadrosaurs, Ceratopsians, Sauropods, Anklyosaurs

Fossil Range: Late Cretaceous

Okay obvious choice, but that’s only because it’s such a special animal. Tyrannosaurus Rex practically needs no introduction. It is the most famous Dinosaur of them all. Once thought to be the largest land based predator of all time, T-Rex was still nevertheless the apex predator of its environment, and preyed on the likes of Triceratops, Anklyosaurus and Alamosaurus, a gigantic Sauropod. It was also one of the last non avian Dinosaurs to go extinct.

Tyrannosaurus Rex had the strongest bite force of possibly any animal ever to live on the planet, and certainly the strongest of any Dinosaur.

Bio mechanical reconstructions of a T-Rex skull for the 2005 documentary The Truth About Killer Dinosaurs, showed that the animal would have had a bite force of over 4 tons. Not only is this greater than any animal alive today, but it would have meant that T-Rex’s skeleton would had to have been stronger than reinforced steel in order to withstand the pressure, the animal would easily have been able to rip up a small car in its jaws no problem.

See here.

Further studies however, including by Gregory Erickson who worked on this documentary, have shown that it’s results were wrong. Tyrannosaurus would have actually had a bite over twice as strong as The Truth About Killer Dinosaurs claimed. T-Rex’s actual bite force was possibly over 9 tons.

Other studies by Mason B Meers however put Tyrannosaurus Rex’s bite force at over 23 tons.

If this were true, then T-Rex would have had the strongest bite force of any animal, even greater than the Megalodon shark. A bite of 23 tons would also give Tyrannosaurus a bite force 4 times great than that of Giganotosaurus and almost 8 times greater than that of Spinosaurus.

At the very least it is believed that Tyrannosaurus had a bite force of over 9 tons which still gives it a stronger bite than any other meat eating Dinosaur.

In addition to being able to bite with more force, Tyrannosaurus could rip off over 500 pounds of flesh from its victims in just one bite. Tyrannosaurus’ bite may also have been infectious, and it could also lift over 5 tons off the ground in its jaws too, which is comparable to an African Elephant and heavier than an Orca.

Tyrannosaurus was also an incredibly durable animal overall. Many Tyrannosaur skeletons have been found with gruesome injuries, which would have been fatal to other animals, that have still nevertheless healed. These include whacks made by Anklyosaur clubs (that could swing with a force of over 4 tons), scratches made by Triceratops horns, and bite marks made by other T-Rex’s. In one instance one Tyrannosaurus skull has a bite mark made in its brain case which has still nevertheless healed, whilst another specimen appears to have healed from a broken neck!

Tyrannosaurus was also a very intelligent Dinosaur too. Its brain was considerably larger than any other big meat eater, and more recent studies have shown that Tyrannosaurus may actually have been more intelligent than a Chimpanzee.

Tyrannosaurus’ advanced intelligence enabled it to have far more refined senses too. Its eye sight was far superior to modern day birds of prey such as Eagles, whilst its sense of smell according to Bob Bakker would have been comparable to 100 blood hounds.

Finally Tyrannosaurus could also run faster than most of its intended prey species such as Triceratops. Its top speed was at roughly 25 miles per hour. Though slower than other large carnivores such as Giganotosaurus and Allosaurus, it was faster than other large animals, including modern day elephants.

Tyrannosaurus Rex was the last and largest in a long line of meat eating Dinosaurs called the Tyrannosaurs. The Tyrannosaurs initially began as small meat eating Dinosaurs in the Jurassic, but gradually over the course of several million years they evolved into giant killers, and out competed other groups of large meat eating Dinosaurs in any area they appeared in. By the end of the Cretaceous period the Tyrannosaurs were unquestionably the dominant large meat eaters, but sadly they would be driven to extinction along with all of the other non avian Dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period 65 million years ago.

Still its somewhat fitting that at the very end of their reign over the earth, the Dinosaurs evolved the most sophisticated and dangerous predator ever to walk the earth.

Whilst it may no longer be considered the largest land based predator of all time,  Tyrannosaurus Rex is still utterly unsurpassed among the giant killers in terms of intelligence and sheer power.

In Popular Culture

Where to begin! Tyrannosaurus Rex is the most famous Dinosaur of them all. It has appeared in The Lost World (1925), King Kong, Dinosaurus, The Valley of the Gwangi, all versions of The Land of the Lost, Jurassic Park, The Lost World Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Walking with Dinosaurs, and Primeval.

It would take too long to run through all of the big guys appearances on the small and big screen, so I’ll just show you some of his greatest hits here.

Thanks for reading.

Hypocrisy From The Mary Sue In Regards To Buffy and Doctor Who

Image result for the mary sue logo

I know I said I wasn’t going to do any more articles about the decline of Doctor Who, but I couldn’t resist after reading this article. This will hopefully be a one off.

Recently it was announced that Joss Whedon will be remaking his iconic series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with a black lead.

Now I have mixed feelings about this. Buffy is in my opinion one of the absolute greatest television series ever made. Also its no secret that I dislike identity politics being dragged into franchises.

Obviously I have 0 problems with female, LGBT or black leads (I would hardly like Buffy of all shows if I did.) Identity politics is not just simply having non white or non straight leads. It usually involves race baiting in the both the promotional material, and in the work itself, insulting the white characters and viewers,  and not giving LGBT and black characters any kind of personality, other than being black and LGBT.

Considering Joss Whedon’s recent association with charlatans like Anita Sarkeesian it sadly seems as though this version of Buffy is going to be more along the lines of the recent ghastly Supergirl series than the original ground breaking show.

Personally I think it would have been better if Joss Whedon had just adapted his comic book mini series Fray, for television. Fray for those of you who don’t know is about another Slayer 200 years in the future. Vampires are public knowledge (though most people tend to think of them as mutants called lurks.)

Fray has an unusual setting for a Vampire and indeed a supernatural story in general, of the far future with mutants, hover cars, laser guns and space ships.

Fray is also a very interesting character in her own right. She’s a grittier, more level headed, practical character who is not afraid to murder people as well as Vampires.

Dana Delorezno (best known for playing Kelly in Ash Vs Evil Dead) would be absolutely perfect in the role. She’d be as iconic as that character in my opinion as Sarah Michelle Gellar was as the Buffster herself!

Still at any rate what really interested me about this story was a recent article by the hard lined feminist website, The Mary Sue.

I don’t follow this website normally but a friend of mine posted a link to this article to a site that I do frequent, The Hive.

The Mary Sue: I Don’t Want A Black Buffy

The author argues that a black Buffy is not a good idea. They claim that black people should be given their own heroes, rather than just remakes of white heroes. They also argue that even within the Buffyverse, we don’t need to make Buffy black. We could easily have a spin off with a black Slayer.

Perfectly reasonable points of course, the only problem is when it was time to turn the Doctor, a previously established MALE hero into a woman, the Mary Sue had the opposite attitude and furthermore slandered anyone opposed to the idea of a female Doctor as a sexist.

Sexist Doctor Who Fans React To Jodie’s Casting

Funny thing is I have used their arguments against a black Buffy, against a female Doctor in the past. Okay I’ve used many arguments against a female Doctor, but still among them have been that if you want to create a really strong role for women, surely its better to create a new character than hijack one that has been a male for 50 years, and will always be seen as male in popular culture?

I also have regularly said that I would LOVE to see a Romana spin off. Romana was an already established Time Lady character in Classic Who. We could have easily had her return to the series, be made popular with viewers, and then get her own show.

I ran through a massive list of actresses that would make great Romana’s including Dawn Steele and Katie McGrath, and I even ran through how the Romana series could be distinct from Doctor Who.

Yet apparently I am a sexist cretin according to the Mary Sue? How? If black people shouldn’t just be given hand me downs of existing white characters like Buffy, then shouldn’t women not be given existing hand me downs of male heroes like the Doctor? (And don’t give me that bullshit of “the Doctor was never a male character” or “time lords could always change gender” because we both know that neither of those things were true until the SJWs got their way with the show by bullying Steven Moffat.)

There are only two possibilities here to explain the Mary Sue taking the opposite position with a black Buffy from with a female Doctor Who . 1/ They think that women ironically don’t deserve their own heroes, unlike black people and men, so its okay to give women the 14th version of a male hero, but NOT okay for black people to be given the second version of a white hero. 2/ That they are anti men bigots who simply wanted the Doctor to be a woman to upset the male fans who looked up to him.

What other reason can there be? Don’t make Buffy black, because black people deserve their own heroes, but make the Doctor an existing male character a woman because, what hand me downs of existing characters are empowering when they are for women?

Just to be clear I am not targeting the writer of the article about a black Buffy specifically. I have no idea who they are, they may be a fair and decent person, this is just directed at the Mary Sue who chose to publish both articles, showing that they agree with both points.

Ironically I agree somewhat with the Mary Sue on why a black Buffy isn’t the best idea. Whilst I don’t think representation matters, if you do want black people, or any group to have a hero for them, then come up with a new hero for them.

A character like the Doctor, or Buffy entered popular culture as a certain thing, a man, a white woman etc, and so they will always be seen as that. The Doctor despite their best efforts will always be a male hero to most people, similarly Sherlock Holmes will always bee seen as a man because most versions have been men, and the most famous versions have been men. The same applies in reverse too of course. Xena will always be seen as a woman in popular culture, and Buffy will always be seen as a little blonde haired teenage girl.

However since the Mary Sue dismissed everyone with a valid complaint against a female Doctor then I’ll give them the same treatment in regards to their complaints against a black Buffy.

“Anyone who is opposed to a black Buffy is clearly a racist. The Mary Sue are white supremacists wanting Buffy to remain a blonde haired Aryan icon. Black people exist you know, and its high time that they were represented on the small screen. Since when did Buffy need a white skin pigmentation to save the day? What possible characteristics are there that Buffy has that a black woman doesn’t? Clearly The Mary Sue are racists stuck in the past. The good old white days are over. Its time!

There see how unreasonable you are now? Maybe you can get an idea of why fandoms tend to hate feminists?

How Rick From The Young Ones Predicted Social Justice Warriors

Image result for how Russell Brand sees himself

The Young Ones was one of the greatest British sitcoms of all time. Though only lasting two short series of 6 episodes, it helped launch the careers of Ade Edmondson and Rik Mayall, one of Britain’s most beloved comedy double acts, and inspired generations of British comedians with its unique mix of physical, political, surrealist, and anarchic humour.

Whilst the show still has a very loyal following around the world, a few contemporary critics have accused The Young Ones of being somewhat dated, as many of the jokes in the series were topical. Ironically however I feel that if anything the Young Ones is more relevant now than it was in the 1980s.

The character of Rick, played by Rik Mayall (who also co-created and co-wrote the series) is the perfect representation for the modern Social Justice Warrior, or third wave feminist, or regressive leftist.

Rik Mayall was not right wing himself. In fact after The Young Ones, one of his biggest successes was The New Statesman, which marvellously skewered the Tory government. (Much like the Young Ones, though written about topical events at the time, sadly many of the jokes are still just as applicable today about the current Tory government.)

Rik Mayall was politically very left wing in many ways, but like a lot of people he could see that the left in general was being overtaken by tribalism and worst of all chancers and posers looking to make a name (and some money!) For themselves.

In my opinion there has been no greater satire of the regressive left than Rick and in this article we are going to explore how he captured their neurosis, hypocrisy and insincerity perfectly.

1/ He claims to be a Marxist, Socialist, and Communist without knowing anything about those ideologies

Image result for lenin

The character of Rick identified as a communist, a Leninist and an anarchist. Of course he knew next to nothing about any of those ideologies (for one thing Lenin absolutely despised anarchism.) Rick is in fact shown specifically to have fallen asleep in one episode whilst reading Das Kapital.

Rick also appears to be somewhat conservative at heart. Despite constantly going on about hating Thatcher, he says in the final episode that she “bloody well got the country back on its feet”.

Many on the regressive left, including Antifa will identify as communists, socialists and even anarchists without really having any understanding of those ideologies.

They will praise the likes of Fidel Castro, Vladamir Lenin, even in some cases Joseph Stalin without any knowledge of the horrors these men inflicted on their people.

Nearly 20 percent of Millennials Think Stalin Was A Hero

Whenever you see a millennial “communist” arguing with a right winger like Sargon of Akkad, they will almost always be stumped when asked to justify the horrors of communism or even just explain what the ideology actually is.

Now don’t get me wrong here, I am NOT a right winger like Sargon. In some ways I think that Sargon is as wrong as the leftists he argues with.

Sargon in my opinion is as tribal about capitalism as the leftists are about communism. Sargon’s attempts to justify the horrors carried out by capitalism from the Vietnam war to the Iraq war, to the depression, to the first world war, to the Libyan crisis are exactly the same as the “communists” defence of the horrors carried out by communism “they just weren’t doing it right.”

Sargon is also willing to look the other way when it comes to fascists who support his ideology like Agusto Pinochet and Joseph McCarthy just like Antifa do for monsters like Stalin.

Personally I do support a number of socialist ideals such as the NHS, the welfare state and re-nationalised railways and gas and electricity, but I do not believe in handing over all power to the government. Independent companies who manufacture their own product should still be allowed to own it, and the media should remain independent.

I think unchecked capitalism and socialism lead to problems. Socialism will hand over too much power to the government leading to fascism, but capitalism does lead to corprotism. Sadly however neither side will admit their chosen ideology has any problems and so we’re locked in an endless cycle of whataboutism.

Still at the very least Sargon and others like him do have a basic understanding of the ideology they claim to support, where as I find a lot of these modern SJWs literally don’t even know anything about communism, or socialism or anarchism.

Basically its cooler and more trendy to be left wing, so they adopt the label of communist for their image.

Take for instance Caitlin Moran, a lefty journalist who identifies as a Marxist. Moran is a massive fan of Hillary Clinton.

Clinton was one of the most crooked, right wing, hawkish politicians in the entire history of US politics (and that’s saying a lot.) Clinton voted in favour of the Iraq war, and for a war in Iran in 2005 (which even the most crooked war hawks in the Republican party were opposed too. Imagine how disasterous a war between the USA led by George W Bush and Iran would have been.)

Then there is the fact that Clinton played a key role in the Libyan crisis and the coup in Honduras, both of which destabilised those countries and plunged them into anarchy.  In the Libyan crisis’ case Clinton’s interference also led to the rise of ISIS and the current refugee crisis.

Hillary Clinton’s Huge Libya Disaster

Africans Are Being Sold At Libyan Slave Markets

The Clinton foundation has also made a career out of robbing the poor and corporate fraud on a truly unprecedented scale.

How The Clinton Foundation Stole From The Poor

The idea that anyone on the left could support this woman is truly laughable.

What actual Socialists think of this war hawk.

Wading Through The Hillary Clinton Book

What a poser who clearly doesn’t actually know anything about Clinton, but likes her for superficial reasons thinks of her.

You can see how based on this, Moran’s left wing politics are as superficial as can be just like Ricks. She is clearly happy to overlook the fact that Clinton is a war monger, a wall street shill, and takes money from Saudi Arabia, a country that treats women as less than fully human, all because it suits her narcissistic desire to see herself represented.

2/ He’s a soft, scared, middle class, privileged brat

Image result for antifa

The character of Rick loved to paint himself as a hard, working class, revolutionary. A catchphrase of his was “I’m so street and hard and cool”.

The great irony was that Rick came from a very well off family, had never done a day’s work in his life, was a total physical coward, and would probably own a publishing company by the age of 26 that his parents bought for him.

Rick was also shown to be a bully to Neil, the most vulnerable and defenceless member of the house, who he would push around and demean at every opportunity simply because it made him feel big.

The same is true of many of the regressive left. A good proportion of Antifa are upper middle class kids who want to look hard, so they’ll attack single protesters, or speakers in large groups with baseball bats, or pepper spray women in the eyes!

Whenever they are faced with an actual confrontation however, many regressive leftists tend to fold rather quickly.

This video from Sargon does a brilliant job of breaking down how many SJWs are attracted to the movement more because it gives them a chance to shove others around and look big, just like Rick.

You only have to look at a lot of the targets these regressive lefties go after to see what cowards they are.

SJWs tend to either invent battles, or go after fights that have already been won. The gender wage gap for instance is a prime example of this. The gender wage gap does exist, but not for the reasons that feminists make out. It is illegal to pay women less for the same work as men, women end up making less than men because they have to take more time off to have children, or go into professions that pay less.

See here. The Gender Wage Gap And 5 Other Feminist Myths

Feminists however still insist on rallying against this because its an easy target. Similarly feminists go after the science fiction and fantasy genres because they are an easy target too.

Sci fi and fantasy, historically have always been among the most progressive genres. They have broken new ground in terms of representation in television series and films and comic books with things like Star Trek, Wonder Woman and the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Why Star Trek Was So Important To MLK JR

The Transcendental Effect Of The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Yet despite all of this, these are the genres that SJWs target more than any other? That’s simply because they are easy to bully. Sci fi and fantasy are looked down on by the mainstream media, even with the geek chic culture, people who take them too seriously (IE care about them in a non superficial way.) Are looked down on as sad nerds, losers and outcasts.

Not only will the media ALWAYS be on the side of the feminists against the sad, smelly basement dwellers, but many of the nerds themselves will not want to be seen as sad losers, so they will take the side of the feminists. Self loathing fanboyism is a terrible affliction that affects many franchises.

Feminists however will never go after genres that aren’t so easy to bully like say Westerns in quite the same way. Westerns in contrast to Sci Fi and Fantasy haven’t ever really given strong roles to women, black people or other minorities in quite the same way (of course that’s because of the time they are set in.)

Still the SJWs don’t target these genres? Not that I want them to of course, but hey why is it only Sci Fi they go after for supposedly having too many white, male heroes?

The reason for that is again because its harder to bully Westerns. Not only is the genre more respected, but Western fans, at least stereotypically are seen as big, rough, gun toting, good ol boys who are probably not going to be happy being told by some posh, privileged middle class woman like Claudia Boleyn or Anita Sarkeesian, that they can’t enjoy their Lee Van Cleef or Clint Eastwood films anymore because they promote “toxic masculinity.”

That’s probably the reaction they’d get, so it makes sense that they go after, nerdy, shy, guys with low self esteem who try and cover up being nerdy. (Only to fail miserably.)

Nerds are to modern day SJWs what Neil was to Rick. The easy target they love pushing around to feel big.

3/ He throws words like racist, sexist, fascist and Nazi around at the drop of a hat

Image result for have you had enough nazi or do you want some more

The character of Rik regularly refers to just about any figure of authority from police men, to bus drivers, to receptionists as Nazis or fascists. He also desperately tries to get offended on behalf of women and minorities over the most trivial bullshit too.

RICK: Absolutely pathetic! There’s nothing on at all! Humph! Don’t know why we bother to pay our license!

MIKE: We don’t.

RICK: But, haven’t we got a license?

MIKE: No.

RICK: But that makes me a criminal! [thinks about it] Right on! Yeah, this will shake them up at the Anarchists Society! Occupying the refectories! So what? This is the real stuff! I’m a fugitive! A desperado! I’m going to form a new union society, right? With me as president! ‘People Who Don’t Pay Their TV Licenses Against the Nazis!‘ [takes out pad and pen and starts writing] This is only the beginning! 

The left nowadays of course will regularly refer to anyone who disagrees with them as racists, sexists, Nazis, fascists and bigots.

In fact those terms have sadly been somewhat been devalued as a result of the SJWs throwing them around so often. Nazi has just become another generic insult. Left leaning, liberal people like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Maryam Namazie have been tarred as racists and sexists simply due to their criticisms of Islam and feminism.

Quite frankly its ridiculous to call even hard line right wingers like Sargon of Akkad, Paul Joseph Watson and Milo Yiannopoulis Nazis. The Nazis were a political spectrum on their own, completely separate from left or right. Neither thinking everything should be nationalised or privatised should lead you to thinking that entire sections of society should be exterminated.

Similarly having legitimate criticisms against ideologies like Islam and feminism doesn’t mean you are bigoted against one group of people, never mind want to exterminate them!

Sadly however just as with Rick, modern day leftists will still tar anyone they don’t like as a Nazi or a racist out of a combination of hysteria, and simply not having an argument, so they have to smear their opponents.

4/ He’s a letch behind closed doors

Image result for macktivist

Rick is a hard lined feminist who often screams at the other housemates for their supposedly sexist attitudes.

Ironically however in secret Rick is a pervert who has a stash of porn magazines and is later shown to grope Jennifer Saunders character (Helen Mucas) and look down her top whilst she sleeps.

It may be a cliche that male feminists are only doing it for sex, but sadly in recent years it certainly has proven to be the case with many high profile male feminists.

A recent and hilarious example was Chris Hardwick. Hardwick is your typical woke, male feminist geek who slanders anyone that doesn’t LOVE the new Ghostbusters movie, or the female Doctor Who as horrible, disgusting man baby sexists.

See for yourself.

Flash forward a few months however and guess who is the recipient of serious abuse allegations.

Chris Hardwick Abuse Allegations

Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and another famous male feminist was also recently accused by his own wife, Kai Cole of cheating on her for a period of 15 years.

It is hilarious in hindsight when you think back to Joss Whedon slandering other nerds and geeks and film makers as sexists, such as when he called the director of Jurassic World a sexist, or when he also smeared those who were unhappy at a female Doctor Who as sexists, or when he compared Gamer Gators to the KKK! The entire time he was showing the one woman who supposedly mattered the most to him, no respect whatsoever.

I’m All For Progress

Joss Whedon is a hypocrite preaching feminist ideals

In addition to this many prominent anti gamer gators have similarly been revealed to be harassers themselves.

There are many other notable examples, but still you can definitely see a pattern emerging here.

A lot of these men use their position to get close to women and make themselves untouchable, but I feel there is also perhaps a genuine sense of guilt in their actions. They think (incorrectly of course) that by white knighting for women like Anita Sarkeesian they can perhaps make up for the appalling way they treat the other women in their life.

5/ The AWFUL Poetry

The character of Rick was an aspiring poet who used to refer to himself as “The People’s Poet”. All of his poems that were meant to be about topical issues that were affecting “the kids”, but they ended up being insular, narcisstic, self indulgent pieces about his own petty little problems.

The character skewered the emerging punk poet scene at the time, but in the decades since he has become just as valid a parody of the emerging feminist poetry scene, which is similarly often hysterical, self indulgent and focused only on the problems of privileged middle class teenagers like mansplaining, or someone being rude to them on twitter.

See for yourself how there is really little difference between Rick’s poetry and modern feminists.

I actually think Rik’s were better.

6/ He is a tantrum throwing child

Whenever Rik didn’t get his way he would scream and shout and stamp his foot like a little child. Mayall would even say that The Young Ones were conceived as a family, with Mike as the father, Neil as the put upon mother, and Rik and Vyv as the squabbling children.

Rik’s childishness was further proof of his privileged upbringing. He was used to ALWAYS getting his way from his rich parents and couldn’t take it out in the real world.

The same is of course true of many SJWs and feminists who similarly are spoiled brats used to always getting their on way from their parents, so when that doesn’t happen they’ll scream and throw Rick style tantrums in public.

7/ He wants to censor violent forms of entertainment

In the episode Flood, Rick tells Vyvian that he hates violent comic books, because all the characters do is fight all the time. Naturally Vyvian ridicules his argument.

Here is the exchange.

Rick: And what is it you’re reading, Vyvyan? A bit of Pretarkian verse, is it? Little bit of French drama? 

Vyvyan: It’s called, ‘SS Death Camp Criminal Battalion go to Monte Casino for the Massacre’. 

Rick: [snatching comic] That’s MY bloody comic! 

Vyvyan: Give it back!

Rick: No, Vyvyan! It’s mine! [sits down and reads] Anyway, there’s no point in reading comics, they’re stupid! They treat the kids is if they we’re…well, as if they were, you know, kids! Nothing but war in them! War! War! Bloody war! Why can’t they have stories about love and peace? 

Vyvyan: Because it’s sissy, you girly!

Rick: I’m not being girly, Vyvyan. Longing for a peaceful world is not being girly. 

Vyvyan: It is! It’s being soppy and very very girly! 

Rick: I AM NOT BEING G…Look, this entire discussion is completely sexist anyway and I don’t intend to continue it! [pause] But, for your information, it is not soppy of me to long for a world where a man will love his brother. 

Vyvyan: Poof! 

Rick: You’re deliberately trying to provoke me, aren’t you? 

Vyvyan: Yeah! 

Rick: For one man to love another, Vyvyan, is not poofy. It’s actually very beautiful. It’s only when they start touching each others bottoms that it gets poofy. 

Vyvyan: I’m going to tell Mike and Neil that you said you love men. Hey, Mike...

Rick: Look, all I said was this comic is a reactionary militaristic pamphlet! All they ever do is fight all the time! 

Vyvyan: And what’s so wrong with that? I suppose you think we should all go around touching each others bottoms! ‘Dan Dare touches The Mekon’s bottom!’ ‘Exciting new story: Batman gooses the Joker’s crack!’ 

Rick: Alright! Alright! Alright! What’s this? [makes weird hippie body movement] 

Vyvyan: Being poofy! 

Rick: No, that’s peace! What’s this? [places his bottom in VYVYAN’s face] That’s my bottom, isn’t it? They’re two completely different things!

This is pretty much EXACTLY what modern day SJWs like Jonathan McIntosh say about video games, comic books and tv shows that are too violent.

He argues that they encourage the children who enjoy them to be violent, he also argues that heroes like Spider-Man and Batman are reactionary and reinforce both white supremacy and toxic masculinity.

Of course any time a franchise panders to these types of people (which is fairly often) then it ends up becoming exactly how Vyvyan described.

Take a look at Doctor Who. Okay old ground for me, but its true. Doctor Who began to pander to SJWs from about 2014 onwards. They launched a vicious smear campaign against Steven Moffat, the then producer of Doctor Who. They slandered him as a sexist, homophobic, racist until he started to pander to them in various ways (which by sheer coincidence I’m sure coincided with a massive drop in Doctor Who’s viewing figures.)

At any rate as soon as the show started to pander to these people then the Doctor went from a swash buckling, dashing hero, into a sissy hating himself because he is a man (well at that point).

These two quotes sum it all up.

Pre SJW Doctor

CLAIRE: What are you doing, John? 
ANDREWS: I’m going to trash this fellow within an inch of his life! 
(Jo takes the Doctor’s jacket.)
ANDREWS: Still sticking to that stupid story? 
DOCTOR: I’m afraid so, old chap. 
ANDREWS: You’ll regret it, sir. I think I ought to warn you, I used to box for my school. 
DOCTOR: And I think I ought to warn you that I took lessons from John L Sullivan himself. 
DALY: By Jiminy, the old fellow’s got some pluck. 
DOCTOR: Queensbury rules?
ANDREWS: Naturally. 

This is John L Sullivan by the way. Badass of the Week: John L Sullivan

SJW Doctor

CYBER-BILL: Stand aside.
DOCTOR: Do as she says.
CYBER-BILL: Stand aside.
MASTER: Do as she says. Is the future going to be all girl?
DOCTOR: We can only hope. 

You can see how much as Rick wanted to make the violent comics Vyvyan loved toothless, the same thing has basically happened to Doctor Who.

Look at the characters relationships with his archenemies. In the original Doctor Who series, the Doctor regularly tried to kill his archenemies the Master and Davros, but in the post SJW era of the revival he is in love with the Master (who has now become a woman, called Missy, in a further effort to pander to feminists by setting a precedent for a female Doctor) and he also got all weepy with Davros in a recent two part story.

See for yourself.

Pre SJW Doctor Who

All they ever do is fight all the time. War, war, bloody war! Why can’t they have stories about love and peace.

SJW Who

And what’s so wrong with that? I suppose you think we should all go around touching each others bottoms! ‘Dan Dare touches The Mekon’s bottom!’ ‘Exciting new story: Batman gooses the Joker’s crack!’ 

8/ They are desperate to be seen as weird and edgy

Image result for pink haired feminist

Rick constantly tries to show off how “nutty”, and eccentric he is to impress everyone around him. Sadly however since he has virtually no personality then his attempts to be edgy are always pedestrian and cringey.

RICK: Oh, hello! [runs over] Pleased to meet you! Sorry, so many essays to write! [laughs, snorts] I’m surprised my arms aren’t falling off! Perhaps they are, look out, bonk! [flails his arms wildly] You’ll have to watch out for me because I’m a bit nutty. Aren’t I, everybody?! A bit nutty?

[sticks out his tongue and blows a raspberry]

RICK: Last night, right, we were all watching the television, and it was a programme
we wanted to watch, you know, and then we were just watching it, and right in the middle of it, I just got up and turned it off. Mad!
I don’t care what I do, you know. Unless it’s work or something. You know, last Wednesday we stayed up until one o’clock in the morning!

MIKE: Why are you smashing up saucers, Rick? Your prints on ’em? 

RICK: I suppose you think it’s pretty weird, don’t you Mike? Well. You’d be right. ‘Cause THAT’S the kind of guy I am, right? WEIRD. Which is why I go over people’s heads! A bit like an aeroplane! You think I’m an aeroplane, don’t you, Mike? Well, I’m not.

MIKE: I don’t think you’re an aeroplane, Rick.

RICK: Sycophant!

Many modern day SJWs similarly want to appear edgy in mundane or boring ways like dying their hair pink, growing arm pit hair if they are women or saying that they love Satan.

Jump to 5 minutes 26 seconds in to see what is essentially a woman acting exactly like Rick trying to be edgy by declaring that she has armpit hair to the rest of the world.

9/ He claims that he is an anarchist, yet always goes to authority whenever anything goes wrong

Image result for Rik Mayall

Rick always goes on about how anti establishment he is,  and how the police are fascists and pigs. Yet at the first sign of trouble he will instantly go to the police or any figure of authority.

Neil: Oh well. well, we’ll all probably get drowned or eaten by octopuses, then.
Rick: WHAT? Phone the police!
Neil: But they’re fascists!
Rick: Well, never mind about that now! Telephone, Vyvyan!

RICK: It’s stealing, Vyvyan! It’s common stealing! And if you ever touch it again, EVER, I’m going to the police. I really will! I will go to the police!

VYVYAN: Why aren’t you dead?

RICK: I’m not prepared to discuss it with you, Vyvyan. You will be hearing from my solicitors in the morning. I’m going to write to my MP.

[takes out paper and pencil]

NEIL: You haven’t got an MP, Rick. You’re an anarchist.

RICK: Oh. Well, then I shall write to the lead singer of Echo and the Bunnymen!

The same is true of many modern day feminists and social justice warriors who despite being communists, anarchists and anti establishment, will still instantly go to someone they disagree with’s employer to get them fired, or go to the police to get them arrested! I’m not joking.

See here.

Once again this ties rather nicely into the fact that Rick and others like him are such spoiled brats, always used to getting someone else to fix things for them.

10/ His hatred of Thatcher is based on nothing

Image result for Thatcher

Now don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying that there weren’t plenty of reasons to hate Thatcher.

In my opinion its a toss up between Thatcher and Tony Blair for who is the worst post war Prime Minister of all time.

Still Rick is shown to not really have a reason to hate Thatcher, simply because he is completely A political. Its all about image with him, so he simply hates Thatcher to fit in.

We see a similar set up with feminists and Donald Trump today. Once again there are many reasons one would hate the Donald, but certainly a good portion of these virtue signalling feminists and SJWs only hate him because its trendy.

The most recent Trump protest was perhaps the finest example of this. So many more feminists came to protest Trump visiting than when the Prince of Saudi Arabia came to visit the UK earlier this year.

Now I’m sure that some of the same people who did protest Trump’s visit also protested that for the Prince of Saudi Arabia, but the overwhelming majority did not.

Over 4 times as many people came to protest Trump than the Prince of Saudi Arabia. To me this showed how the Trump protest wasn’t about standing up for women’s rights, as ultimately these people don’t mind when someone who is the head of country that treats women as less than fully human turns up. The Prince of Saudi Arabia is simply not as trendy to hate as Trump, so the posers don’t bother to protest him.

Conclusion

As you can see Rick’s successors have sadly turned left wing politics into a joke. Its time that people who cared about genuine left wing ideals did all they could to separate themselves from the Rick’s of this world.

Its a shame in contrast to Mayall, who called out those on both the left and the right, modern, “edgy” comedians like Frankie Boyle are utterly terrified of saying anything against those on the left. They know their place. Whilst SJW is an ironic term, many of them stupidly take it as a compliment, as they think its some racist or homophobe that hates social justice.

Comparing them to Rick in my opinion is much better.

Thanks for reading.

Coming Up On Burrunjorsramblesandbabbles

Okay its an understatement to say that this has been a very hectic and troublesome year for me personally.

Throughout the first three months of this year I suffered a severe bout of depression, one of the worst I have ever experienced in my life.

Tragically my Uncle also passed away in June this year after a heart attack, and another close family member has been diagnosed with a serious illness.

Needless to say I haven’t had as much time to work on this blog, but now after possibly the worst 6 months of my entire life I am ready to resume my work here.

This article will cover what I am going to write about in the up coming months.

The History of N-Space

Image result for N-Space Doctor Who

About 2 years ago I wrote an article arguing that Classic Doctor Who and New Doctor Who did not take place in the same universe, but that Classic Who did take place in the same universe as various other fictional series and franchises.

I even wrote up a fictional history for them all together called the History of N-Space. However I felt it didn’t work at the time and so I deleted it.

However after the recent female Doctor debacle I have decided that as far as I’m concerned New Who and Classic Who are not canon to each other so this is essentially my head canon. Since according to people like Steven Moffat and Paul Cornell Doctor Who has no canon, then as far as I’m concerned The History of N-Space is as valid as New Who.

I’ve also had a few people telling me they miss the N-Space article, so I have decided to redo it, but hopefully in a much better way than before.

Obviously this means that the history of the Daleks articles which treats all of New Who and Classic Who as canon will not be continued. I won’t be deleting them as they are popular, but they are finished for now.

Don’t worry I won’t be writing anymore articles about how much I dislike the latest few seasons of New Who. I’ve pretty much said all I have to about that, so really there is no need to keep beating a dead horse. Also I hate being negative all the time, so the History of N-Space article will NOT be one bashing New Who in the slightest.

I actually think that splitting New Who and Classic Who into separate universes makes New Who far more enjoyable, as you can appreciate say David Tennant’s excellent performance, and scenes like Rose and the Doctor being on the beach without having to imagine him as being the same character as the older, more mature, asexual character from Classic Who.

 

The happy couple?

As to which other franchises I believe exist in the same universe as Classic Who, I see it like this.

Classic Who, Dan Dare (the first three versions), Blake’s 7, Godzilla (Showa era), Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Destroy All Humans video game series, Futurama, Quatermass, Prince of Darkness, the comic book Caballistics, Inc and Lost in Space all take place in the same universe in my opinion, as all have had loose crossovers with one another.

Doctor Who and Dan Dare crossed over in a Children in Need special where the Doctor and Dan visited a prison planet containing the Doctors worst enemies and the Mekon.

Blake’s 7 and Doctor Who have had a few crossovers with one another. In the novel Corpse Maker by Chris Boucher, a one off character from Blake’s 7 called Carnell encounters the Voc Robots, Leela and the 4th Doctor. Furthermore in the audio series Kaldor City, which features both Doctor Who and Blake’s 7 characters, the main protagonist is implied to be Avon, the main protagonist from Blake’s 7 in disguise!

Classic Who meanwhile had a few subtle crossovers with Quatermass in the story Remembrance of the Daleks. British Rocket Group and Quatermass himself are given a few mentions as real things.

“I wish Bernard were here.”

“British Rocket Group has its own problems”

In Futurama meanwhile the character of the 4th Doctor appears twice as a real person. First in Moebius Dick where he is one of the space travelers devoured by the space whale who are later rescued from its stomach by Leela.

In All The Presidents Heads the 4th Doctor is also briefly seen running back to the TARDIS in the altered timeline.

Fourth Doctor.jpg

File:Doctor Who.PNG

The Jupiter 2, the main spaceship from Lost in Space is also among the ships the Space Whale has trapped too, showing that it exists in the same universe as Futurama and therefore Classic Who.

Furthermore Godzilla also appears in Futurama as a real creature too, which once again links Godzilla to Doctor Who. As to which Godzilla it is however, well personally I am going to settle for the Showa era Godzilla.

Aside from the fact that he is my favorite, the Showa era Godzilla series had a crossover with the Planet of the Apes film series. In Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla and Terror of Mechagodzilla the earth is attacked by a race of talking Apes working with a race of mutant men who wear masks made of human skins.

Whilst it is never made clear in the narrative, the intention of Toho was that these were the Apes and the mutant humans from the first two Planet of the Apes movies travelling to the past to change history. There is a slight reference to this in Terror of Mechagodzilla where the aliens mention saving the earth from mankind.

Futurama makes reference to Planet of the Apes having happened in the episode The Late Philip J Fry, so since Planet of the Apes and Godzilla both exist in the same reality as Futurama, that means that it has to be the Showa era Godzilla.

Of course this also means that the last 3 Planet of the Apes movies of the original series are not canon either. I have nothing against them. I think they were all great films, but they cannot be made to fit in with the N-Space timeline. You can rationalize it that the last 3 Apes movies take place in an alternate universe, with a similar history, but ultimately different in other ways.

Destroy All Humans and Cabillistics also contain references to events from Doctor Who stories as though they actually happened.

Prince of Darkness, a classic horror movie by the legendary director John Carpenter was said to have been based on real events, researched by Martin Quatermass, who in publicity material written to accompany the film, was said to be the brother of Bernard Quatermass. Thus as it is linked to Quatermass, then it is linked to Doctor Who too.

Finally the TARDIS also appears in Red Dwarf in a cameo scene.

Incidentally the cast of Red Dwarf have also said that they want to have a crossover with Doctor Who, though they also said that they wanted to have one of the original Doctors instead.

Red Dwarf Cast: We Want A Doctor Who Crossover

So for all of these reasons and more I personally think that all of these franchises share the same universe as one another and I am going to try and work them all together in one history. I will have to take a few creative liberties with them to make them fit, but by and large I am going to try and stay faithful to every series in order to make them work.

Every Cyberman Story

Having reviewed every Dalek story, I now intend to do the same for every Cyberman story. We will be looking at the Classic era Cybermen stories only as again I don’t really like to acknowledge New Who as much these days.

Other Non Sci Fi and Fantasy Reviews

Image result for Katey Sagal

In the last few years this blog has tended to focus more on sci fi and fantasy which are my two favourite genres.

However I’d like to review other non sci fi or fantasy series. I intend to do reviews of various animated series and classic British and American comedy series too.

I want this blog to be able to branch out a bit, though obviously we will still be looking primarily at sci fi and fantasy, but there will be other types of reviews on this blog too.

My Own Fiction

I am going to post my own fiction here too. I already have a website to showcase my fiction, but being the oldest blog, this has the widest reach, so I am going to post them here as well as on my other site.

Thank you for reading and the first article will be up tomorrow.

 

 

 

Why Classic Doctor Who and New Doctor Who Do Not Take Place In The Same Universe

Image result for Doctor Who

Image result for Doctor Who

Okay its no secret that I pretty much HATE all of the New Doctor Who from 2014 on. I think that its makers basically sold us out to a bullying, intolerant, needy ideology and have sunk what was once the most popular and wonderful of sci fi series.

Still in all fairness I don’t think that the New Doctor Who ever really worked as a sequel to the original series. Even in the Tennant era, whilst many fans, including I acknowledge myself, have tried to fit it in with the original. New Who was really always a different show.

Yes okay Classic Who changed over the course of its 26 year run, but never to quite the same extent as New Who. As I have been over many times there is a consistent characterisation overall to the 7 classic era Doctors, which New Who broke practically from the start.

So in this article I am going to argue that New Who and Classic Who take place in two separate universes, with a similar but different history (explaining the presence of the classic era Doctors in the 50th. They are simply alternate counterparts to the classic series versions.)

Obviously this is just my own head canon at this point, but as the likes of Paul Cornell and Steven Moffat have regularly said that Doctor Who has no canon (to cover up their own plot holes) then hey, this is just as valid as anything else.

I am also going to run down why I think this is better not just for Classic Who but New Who as well, and also for the future of the Doctor Who franchise in general.

So lets get started then shall we?

The Point of Divergence

Image result for 12th Doctor saves Davros

In my opinion the drastic change in history for the New Who and Classic Who universes occurs in the story The Magicians Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar.

Here the 12th Doctor went backwards in time and saved a young Davros from a minefield and instilled in him an important lesson, that compassion can be a strength. Davros evidently remembered this enough to programme a concept of mercy into the Daleks, as several Daleks throughout all of New Who have been shown to understand mercy, compassion and pity.

The Metaltron begs the Doctor to show pity when he attempts to kill it, whilst the Stone Dalek begs River Song to show him mercy, and finally Clara is able to say mercy through the Daleks machine in The Witch’s Familiar.

This is of course at odds however with what we see in Classic Who when Genesis of the Daleks states that the first Daleks created by Davros have no concept of pity or mercy. This isn’t just a throwaway line. Its an important plot point in the story, with even Davros at the end realising the horror of what he has created by depriving the Daleks of the ability to feel pity.

Furthermore Classic Who always made a point of showing the Daleks not being able to understand mercy in other stories too. Even when faced with certain death, Daleks in Classic Who NEVER beg for mercy like their Revival era counterparts. They might scream in fear and yell “retreat” but they never beg their enemies to show compassion.

So even already New Who and Classic Who are at odds with one another.

That is unless of course you take them as existing in different universes, with similar but ultimately different histories.

I say that in the New Who Universe which we’ll call M-Space, Davros as a boy wandered into the field by accident where he was rescued by the Doctor, whilst that simple event never happened in the universe Classic Who took place in which we’ll call N-Space.

Maybe in N-Space Davros stayed in that day, rather than going out to play with his friends like in M-Space where he got lost and stumbled into the minefield.

As a result of this the N-Space Davros never met the Doctor as a child and as a result never learned the important lesson about mercy from the Doctor. He continued to think that it was only weakness and so the N-Space Davros removed all sense of pity and compassion from the Daleks

As a result, as we saw in Genesis, the N-Space Daleks eventually overran Davros, and lacking any concept of mercy, shot their creator, though little did they know, he survived and would return to try and take leadership of their race, splitting them into two, which held them back greatly.

In M-Space however though the Daleks still overran Davros, they did not shoot him, as they were able to show some small measure of mercy towards their creator. Instead they enslaved him like in Journey’s End and The Magicians Apprentice.

As a result of this the M-Space, the Daleks became far more advanced and powerful.

They were able to make use of Davros’ intellect throughout their history, and they also did not have to deal with Davros splitting their race in two either.

Of course Davros at some point maybe did try and escape and create new Daleks, (which led to an alternate version of the events of Revelation of the Daleks as seen in The Magicians Apprentice.) Ultimately however they were able to recapture him, and his attempts to create a new Dalek faction never got off the ground in M-Space.

As a result of this, the Time Lords of M-Space became more scared of the Daleks and the two races were locked in a conflict of some kind before the Doctor even left Gallifrey. This explains why according to New Who the Doctor left because of a prophecy about a Dalek/Time Lord hybrid, whilst in Classic Who he had no fucking idea who they were in the first Dalek story.

In order to combat the Daleks, the Time Lords technology advanced (including finding the way to bring the dead back) and they even modified their bodies too. Finding a way to make regeneration into a weapon for example (explaining why it blows shit up in New Who.)

These modifications to their bodies however had a number of side effects, including gender bending and also making the incarnations of a Time Lord more radically different to each other. Naturally Time Lord society began to accommodate those differences, leading to different attitudes towards regeneration from the Time Lords in N-Space.

Of course this led to various other changes throughout the history of both universes which we will look at here.

1/ The Cybermen

Image result for cybermen mondas

The Cybermen in Classic and New Who are not compatible with one another in many ways.

To start with in the 1966 story The Tenth Planet, the Cybermen are shown to invade the earth in the year 1986. Their invasion spreads out all over the world, they attack every major city, and their planet appears in the sky which is on every major news station.

The event isn’t covered up of course, and later stories set in the future show the Cyber invasion having become established history.

From The Moonbase set in the 21st Century.

“There were Cybermen every child knows that, but they died out ages ago.”

In New Who however nobody knows who the Cybermen were by the early 21st century, before the invasion of Canary Wharf which happens in 2006 or 7.

Now you might be thinking that the Tenth Planet jars with what we see of the earth in later stories of the Classic Era where nobody knows about the Cybermen, but it doesn’t.

The last companion before Ace to come from contemporary earth is Peri, who is said in Attack of the Cybermen to come from before the invasion in 1986. Ace meanwhile in Dragonfire was said to have been whisked away to a far away planet 18 months ago.

Assuming that Ace comes from modern earth (which there is nothing to contradict.) Then this would mean Ace was whisked away in 1985 as Dragonfire was broadcast in 1987, meaning that she was whisked away before the Cyber invasion, explaining why she doesn’t know the monsters in Silver Nemesis.

Battlefield and Survival, could easily take place in 1985, or even in 86 before the Cyber invasion which happened in December 1986.

Silver Nemesis meanwhile is said to take place in 1988, but to be fair there is nothing in that story to suggest that everyone else apart from Ace isn’t aware of the Cybermen. Indeed the Nazis do seem somewhat familiar with them, and nobody else meets them in the story to conform whether humanity is familiar with the Cybermen or not, so it is just about possible to fit the Tenth Planet in with later Classic Who stories.

It is not possible however to fit it in with New Who. In New Who, nobody knows about Aliens in Rose set in 2005, and Rose is show to be explicitly unaware of the Cybermen in Dalek.

On top of this technology in the Tenth Planet was shown to be much more advanced than technology on earth in the New Series. Now again fair enough, technology in later 80s Classic stories is not as advanced either, however this can be explained away by the fact that all of the later 80s Classic Who stories are set in little remote, poor, rundown areas, like Silver Nemesis, Survival, Battlefield, Attack of the Cybermen etc.

The technology for the Tenth Planet does actually fit in reasonably well with stories both before and after it. In the Pertwee era UNIT stories that we know took place only a decade or so before The Tenth Planet, the technology is on a similar level. (In both the early Pertwee stories and The Tenth Planet, mankind has developed spaceships far in advance of what we have even today that can take human beings to planets like Mars and back.)

In Power of the Daleks meanwhile mankind has set up various colonies on other planets by the 2020s, to the point where one colony on Vulcan can easily be forgotten about and overlooked. Furthermore according to the Chase mankind has robots that are advanced enough to be indistinguishable from human beings!

With New Who however we see stories set in big cities, and secret military compounds designed to take on alien threats like Torchwood, and the government in the 21st Century, 20 years after the events of The Tenth Planet, and the technology still isn’t as advanced as it is in the Tenth Planet or even certain Pertwee stories like The Ambassadors of Death.

Also according to New Who the first ever colony established on another world was on Mars by the 2050s and the destruction of this single colony was a huge event in the history of mankind. Furthermore it was only after the destruction of Bowie base one, that mankind would leave the solar system. How does this mesh with Power of the Daleks where mankind had various colonies on planets outside of the solar system by 2020, to the point where one could go missing and nobody even noticed!

Classic Who also established that the Cybermen were ONE race who came from the Planet Mondas. Originally they were a vast intergalactic power until their home planet was destroyed. Most of the Cybermen perished when Mondas exploded, but a few survived and colonised Telos, wiping out its inhabitants the Cryons.

A major plot point of the Cybermen’s story arc is that they are a unique race, teetering on the verge of extinction. If they are wiped out there will be no more, hence their catchphrase “We Will Survive!”

New Who meanwhile says that the Cybermen were never a race, rather they were the collective name given to various humanoid species that had transformed themselves into machine creatures.

The Doctor states that the different Cybermen originated almost wherever there were people, and goes on to list worlds that developed their own Cybermen independently from one another, including Mondas, Telos, and earth.

This makes no sense of course in regards to old who. Old Who states that the last of the Mondasian Cybermen moved to Telos and wiped out its native life forms, whilst New Who says that they developed on Telos independently from the ones on Mondas?

See here.

Classic Who

CYBERCONTROLLER: We know your intelligence.

DOCTOR: Oh, thank you very much. Ah yes the lunar surface.

CYBERCONTROLLER: Our machinery had stopped and our supply of replacements had been depleted.

DOCTOR: So that’s why you attacked the Moonbase.

CYBERCONTROLLER: You had destroyed our first planet and we were becoming extinct.

LYTTON: Telos is the Cybermen’s home planet.

DOCTOR: Uh-huh adopted planet. You’d have liked Telos Peri, in the old days when the Cryons were in residence. They were the indigenous population. Until the Cybermen wiped them out.

LYTTON: They had nowhere else to go.

DOCTOR: Oh for heavens sake man, the universe is littered with unpopulated planets.

PERI: Well why not on their own planet. I assume they had one. What’s the matter?

DOCTOR: Mondas the Cyber planet was destroyed.

New Who

DOCTOR: They (Cybermen) always get started. They happen anywhere there’s people. Mondas. Telos. Earth. Planet 14. Marinus. Like sewage, smart phones and Donald Trump. Some things are just inevitable.

DOCTOR: People get the Cybermen wrong. There’s no evil plan, no evil genius. Just parallel evolution. 

This is a complete contradiction. Now according to the Doctor there were people on Telos who turned themselves into Cybermen independently from the ones on Mondas.

What about the non human aliens, the Cryons, who the Mondasian Cybermen wiped out to steal their home planet, whose history the Doctor knew (and who he felt passionate about) and who he met? Is the 12th Doctor saying that the Cyrons turned themselves into Cybermen now?

Also if the Cybermen sprung up on various worlds, why were the Mondasian Cybermen nearing extinction in stories like Tomb of the Cybermen? Surely they must have known that there were various other Cyber factions out there, and that according to the Doctor they would always spring up sooner or later?

Also the recent two parter World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls, featured a sort of origin story for the Cybermen that contradicted The Tenth Planet.

According to this two parter the Cybermen had the power to fly and shoot laser beams from their bodies at the start of their development. In that case, why the hell did we not see the Cybermen in the Tenth Planet display any of these powers?

Once again this isn’t just a minor detail that New Who got wrong. The entire point of the Cybermen in the Tenth Planet is that they still have some human components. They are a mixture of man and machine. They have human hands, they still have names and individual identities like Krang etc.

However according to New Who, before even leaving the place they were created, the Mondasian Cybermen transformed into complete machine creatures?

In short the New Who Cybermen are the complete opposite to the original in almost every way. One’s entire story arc revolves around them being a unique race, nearing extinction, the other are an idea that originates on various different worlds. One was known to mankind in 1986, the other weren’t etc.

There’s no way to reconcile them both.

The Master

Image result for the master missy

The villain to suffer the most from series to series. The John Simm Master obviously wasn’t quite as terrible as Michelle Gomez version. He did carry on certain aspects of the villains personality like his lust for power, whilst Gomez was just a completely different character in every conceivable way.

Still again much like with the Cybermen, the Master even before the SJW pandering began was never really compatible with his classic era counterpart.

The Master in Classic Who was originally stated to be a renegade Time Lord who sought to conquer the galaxy because he believed that under his rule, things would be better. He believed that using his advanced intellect he could cure diseases, avert major disasters, end inequality, and protect planets like earth (that he had a particular fondness for, much like the Doctor.)

He was willing to kill, even billions of people to achieve this, but he initially saw his crimes as being for a greater good. In fact he saw the Time Lords as the villains, as they had the power in his mind to change history for the better, establish a peaceful empire that holds all of the other worlds in line rather than let them destroy each other wars, and cure all of the ills that affect primitive planets like earth.

The Master it was also established was the Doctors friend back on Gallifrey, however their friendship was not that close.

In The Five Doctors when the First Doctor (played by stand in Richard Hurndall) meets the Master he doesn’t even recognise him!

Granted the Master is in a new body, but even then, when the Master tries to jog the Doctors memory, the First Doctor still fails to recall their friendship and later simply refers to him as a villain and a strange fellow, showing that it clearly wasn’t that important a relationship in either men’s lives.

In fact its only mentioned as having been friends years ago in ONE story, The Sea Devils. That’s literally it. In every single other story the two only ever refer to each other as enemies. Even in the Five Doctors, the Master doesn’t introduce himself as an old friend of the first Doctor, simply as having gone to the Time Lord Academy at the same time as he did. (The Five Doctors was written by the co-creator of the Master, Terrance Dicks who not surprisingly, hates Missy with a vengeance.)

When the Doctor and the Master first meet on screen in Terror of the Autons, its obvious that neither have that high an opinion of the other. Still the Master does think that the Doctor can perhaps be a potential ally. He is the only other Time Lord seemingly that isn’t content to just sit back and observe the universe. The Master clearly hopes that the Doctor can help him build his better galaxy in his earliest stories like Colony in Space.

When it becomes apparent to the Master that the Doctor doesn’t share his grand vision for the universe, he sees him as his greatest threat and tries to destroy him above all else. At no point does the Master show hesitation at killing the Doctor because of their past friendship.

The Master also is quite insecure about the Doctor’s intelligence too. As the Doctor is the only other renegade Time Lord whose reputation in some respects outshines him, then The Master is desperate to prove he is superior. We see this in The Mind of Evil when the Masters worst fear is a giant Doctor laughing at him!

The more the Doctor foils the Masters plans, the more the Master comes to genuinely hate the Doctor to the point where it becomes his main desire to not just destroy the Doctor, but humiliate, and torture him.

The Master’s intense hatred of his foe, coupled with an accident that reduces him to his emaciated form in the Deadly Assassin, pushes the villain over the edge to become a vicious, deranged, bitter lunatic. The later Masters are shown to kill for no reason other than their own sadistic cruelty, and are more unstable, vicious characters. They still desire ultimate power however. So much so that in Logopolis, the Master gambles with the fate of the universe itself to gain control over it.

However the key difference is that the likes of Ainley and the Burned Master have dropped the seemingly altruistic facade that the Delgado Master played up in stories like Colony in Space. They want power just for their own glory.

The Doctor meanwhile in turn always views the Master with contempt. He never shows any affection for him. He only mentions their friendship in The Sea Devils, and the rest of the time he not only considers the Master evil and responsible for his actions, but tries to kill him.

In Terror of the Autons, the Doctor is perfectly happy for UNIT to shoot the Master.

In The Mind of Evil, even when the Master has agreed to leave the earth, the Doctor still tries to kill him as he doesn’t want him loose in the universe hurting other worlds. He tries to kill the Master by trapping him in an area that is about to be hit by a missile (using a device that quite literally cripples the Master with his own fear.) He is later absolutely devastated when the Master escapes.

In The Claws of Axos, the Doctor tricks the Master into thinking that he wants to leave humanity to be consumed by the Axons and get revenge on the Time Lords, so that he can trap both the Master and the Axons in an eternal time loop where they will be forced to live the same moment over and over again forever. The Master however catches on to what the Doctor is doing in time and escapes, though the Doctor after successfully trapping the Axons, believes that he trapped the Master too, and is happy about it.

In the Daemons the Doctor compares the Master to Hitler and Gengis Khan!

In The Deadly Assassin meanwhile the Doctor boots a dying Master into a bottomless pit. He later tells the Time Lords that the Master is the one person in all of creation that he would actually wish death on as he is the quintessence of evil.

In Keeper of Traken the Doctor with Adric and Nyssa’s help destroys the Masters TARDIS and seemingly kills him in an inferno.

In Castrovalva the Doctor leaves a pleading Master to be torn to pieces by his own followers in a place that fades from existence. He later says that he hopes the Master is finished for good this time.

In The Five Doctors, the third Doctor, against Sarah Jane’s protests leaves the Master to be killed by the Cybermen. He also states that the idea of the Master helping him is the biggest pile of rubbish he has ever heard in his life!

The Fifth Doctor similarly leaves the Master in the care of the Cybermen and shows no remorse for it “Well if he survived I’ll say sorry.”

In Planet of Fire the Doctor burns the Master to ashes as he begs for mercy.

In The Two Doctors, the Doctor seals the Rani and the Master in a TARDIS with a hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex that’s about to eat both of them!

In Trial of A Time Lord, the Doctor tells the Time Lords (who are known for not only killing their enemies, but erasing them from history) to do what they want with the Master, and only makes a case for Glitz.

In Survival the Doctor nearly bashes the Masters head in with a rock, and only relents when he realises the Cheetah virus will consume him if he carries out any act of violence.

There’s really very few instances where the Doctor is not willing to kill the Master. In The Time Monster, the Doctor pleads for the Master to not be condemned to an eternity of torture at Chronos’ hands. Later when Jo asks him why she showed mercy, the Doctor tells her flatly that he wouldn’t want to condemn anyone to an eternity of torture, even the Master, his worst enemy.

There are a few more instances of the Doctor not killing the Master when the latter is unarmed, but again this doesn’t demonstrate any affection for the villain. He also has a trouble killing Davros, and even the Daleks when they are unarmed. The Doctors moral code only ever allows him to kill in self defence. One could argue however that the Master is the only villain he makes an exception for, including even Davros.

In Resurrection of the Daleks and in The Mind of Evil, the Doctor comes to the conclusion that Davros and the Master must both be killed for the greater good of the universe. When it comes to Davros however, he finds he is unable to just shoot him in cold blood, whilst with the Master as we have seen he went through with it without a seconds thought or regret, and was furious when he found out he survived!

The Doctor and the Master in Classic Who are the bitterest of enemies. They can never completely triumph over the other. The Doctor may stop the Master from taking over the earth, but he never stops him from destroying innocent lives, and never is even able to bring him to justice.

Their friendship which was a very minor part of their relationship, was really more of an ironic echo than anything else.

In New Who meanwhile the Master was said to have been a psychopath since he was a child and was forced to stare into the untempered schism. Since that day he heard a drumming in his head that tormented him and drove him insane.

The Doctor in New Who as a result of this does not view the Master as evil. He thinks had it not been for the drumming in his head he could have been a force for good in the universe. The Doctor and the Master according to New Who had a very intense friendship when they were young.

The Doctor in both his Twelfth and Tenth incarnation regularly states that the Master was his absolute best friend, and possibly even his soul mate. The two even planned to elope throughout the universe together when they were young back on Gallifrey, but for some reason it never happened.

The Doctor is never willing to kill the Master. In fact he actively saves him/her many times. Even when killing the Master will bring all of humanity back after being turned into clones of the Master, the Doctor refuses to kill him, effectively putting the Master above 7 billion people.

The Doctor is also shown to break down into tears when he believes that the Master has died too.

There is also a sexual aspect to the Doctor and the Masters relationship too in the revival, which becomes more obvious after the Master has turned into a woman.

Finally whilst the Simm Master is shown to have a desire to rule, Missy has no such motive. In fact Missy outright gives up a chance for ultimate power just to win her “boyfriend” back, telling him that she doesn’t need an army.

There is no way you can reconcile these two characters as being the same in terms of history, relationship with the main hero, and characterisation.

Why did the Delgado Master never mention the drums in his head? John Simm never shuts up about them.

Also why did all 7 of the Classic era Doctors view the Master as evil and not some poor lost soul, like Tennant. Tennant tells the Simm Master that he doesn’t really want to hurt people, and that if he would just let him help, then the Master could be good. Similarly Capaldi’s Doctor spends an entire year trying to rehabilitate Missy.

Why did the previous Doctors never try and get through to the Master? Why did they view him as being no different to Hitler and go out of their way to murder him?

Why did the first Doctor not remember his friendship with the Master? Apparently the whole reason he was going to run away was so he could spend time with this guy?

Why was there never any hint of romance between the Classic Doctor and Master (and there wasn’t.)

The Classic Masters entire story arc where we see him descend from a power hungry sociopath to a bitter psychopath doesn’t make any sense either if you take the drums origin story.

In Logopolis the Doctor says to the Master with genuine shock “you’re mad” when he sees how he is willing to take such a huge risk in gaining power, showing how the Master is different to how the Doctor remembers him. Again however according to New Who the Master was always a lunatic?

The only explanation that makes any sense is that they are two different characters.

The Great Intelligence

Image result for the great intelligence doctor who

The villain who has changed the most over the course of old and new who. In the original series the Great Intelligence was said to be an alien that came from another universe.

He first came to our reality when a Tibetan monk was mediating and encountered the monster on the astral plan. The Intelligence then hitched a ride via the monk to our universe and took him over.

The possessed monk then spent the next 300 years not only building Yeti robots as his army, but a machine that would allow the GI to fully manifest in our universe. The GI is foiled in this plan by the Second Doctor in the 1930s meaning that it came to earth at some point in the early 1600s.

The Intelligence returns many decades later with new and improved Yeti robots in an attempt to drain the Doctors mind. Though it is defeated, it still manages to escape into space. The Intelligence is shown to be able to possess people. Its true form is nothing more than a voice, and it is a cold and logical creature. It dismisses emotions like revenge as petty, wants to gain knowledge as it believes it is power, yet is also shown to be somewhat cowardly, shrieking in panic when the Doctor makes plans against it.

In New Who meanwhile the Great Intelligence was created from the mind of Professor Walter Simeon in the late 19th Century. Thanks to his experiments it was able to live beyond him. It would always assume his form, it did not have the power to possess people, and it was a highly emotional creature who was shown to have a cruel sense of humour, and enjoyed torturing the Doctor.

Ultimately the New Who Great Intelligence kills itself to get back at the Doctor.

There is no way the GI from old who can be the one from the revival. To start with their origins are completely contradictory to one another. One is an alien from another universe, the other the creation of a mad human. One was in Tibet from the 1600s to the 1900s, the other was in London, unable to leave a tank in the late 19th century.

One was just a disembodied voice, the other always assumed the form of Simeon. One was cowardly, put its survival above all else, was generally cold and logical and sought power, the other was sadistic, vengeful and killed itself to take down the Doctor!

Hell even their minions were different. The GI from Old Who had a fondness for its Yeti robots and always used them, whilst the New Series GI never did.

They are completely different villains other than being a similar idea of a disembodied spirit.

Of course the real reason that they are so different was much like with the Master and the Cybermen, the writers of New Who didn’t give a shit about trying to actually write the villain they were supposed to. They simply wanted to write their own character, but slapped the name of a more famous villain to make them more popular (in the case of the GI it was clearly to cash in on the upcoming release of the then recently discovered Web of Fear.)

The Daleks and Davros

Image result for the Daleks and Davros

The Doctors two greatest enemies, the Daleks and the Davors have definitely been handled the best out of all of the icons of the show in the revival (including even the dear old Doctor himself.)

Still there are a few discrepancies between the old Daleks and the new ones. As I have been over the New Daleks whilst still monsters, at least understand what pity is and can even plead for it, whilst the old Daleks are utterly devoid of even the tiniest bit of compassion.

Also the home planet of the Daleks, Skaro was completely and utterly destroyed in Remembrance of the Daleks when the Doctor caused Skaro’s sun to blow up and consume it.

In the Revival meanwhile it is said that Skaro was ravaged during the time war, but not completely destroyed and then later rebuilt.

Also Davros by the time of Remembrance had upgraded himself into the form a Dalek Emperor, whilst in the revival in stories set after Remembrance he is still in his usual form.

Furthermore as we have been over the Doctors relationship with the Daleks doesn’t match up if you take New Who into account. According to the hybrid story the Doctor ran away because he was scared after reading about a prophecy that the Daleks and the Time Lords would produce a hybrid. So he must have been aware of the Daleks then before he first met them according to Classic Who in the Mutants?

Finally even the Time Lords had no idea who the Daleks were before the events of the War Games when the Doctor brought the monsters to their attention, whilst New Who has the Time Lords being terrified of them before the Doctor even ran away.

The Doctor

Image result for William Hartnell Billie Piper

Yes the main character himself across both series seems like a totally different person (more so than usual.)

Now a lot of people will try and justify this with that old mantra “Doctor Who is all about change, so all change is good”. Well again I say that is as moronic a statement as saying that the show can never change.

Doctor Who has a flexible format that can allow it to change if it needs too, but that doesn’t mean that it has to. Each change must be justified, hence why things like Colin Bakers coat that were just done on a whim were crap.

Also the character of the Doctor as I have explained many times can NOT be anyone. There is a definite template to his personality that defines the Doctor as a character. If there wasn’t then he wouldn’t be the Doctor, he’d just be a name. The job of an actor or writer is to try and do something different within that template, which is true in many ways of every iconic character that is reinterpreted again and again.

Now whilst it would be wrong to say that New Who has completely broken that template, at the same time I think its fair to say that a lot of the time, not only is it hard to imagine the New Who Doctor as being the same character as the original, but you’d laugh.

Take a look at the Doctors morality. In Classic Who the Doctor has a very particular moral code where he will kill if he has to, but prefers to find peaceful solutions. He has no affection for any villain he faces (as we have been over he is more than happy to kill the Master in almost every confrontation.)

He also shows no quams about killing human villains compared to killing monsters either as seen when he poisons Professor Solon. The only times the Classic era Doctor shows hesitation in murdering an enemy is if they are unarmed and it is not in self defence. This can be seen in Resurrection of the Daleks when he refuses to shoot Davros, or Frontier in Space when he tells the earth men they can’t shoot the Master as he is unarmed, or even in Genesis of the Daleks where he memorably shows hesitation at wiping the Daleks out when they are defenceless and at their point of birth.

Of course there are a few exceptions to this, where the Doctor will murder a villain he deems to be too big a threat to the rest of the universe (ironically most instances of this involve the Master such as in The Mind of Evil and Planet of Fire and The Deadly Assassin.)

Still overall the Doctor is more than willing to kill, and he will use any type of weapon to do it. Guns, swords, sonic lances, high explosives, poison, acid, electricity, feeding his enemies to animals, he’ll even beat villains to death with blunt instruments. The Doctor never demonstrates any particular hatred of guns either. In fact in some stories he seems to be quite the gun buff.

He mentions having several vintage gun collections to Steven in The Gun Fighters, and scolds Steven for not being careful with his favourite gun. He also mentions building a gun in his workshop in The Invasion of Time, and in The Talons of Weng Chiang he demonstrates impressive knowledge on fire arms in general. Finally in The Visitation he even mentions having a gun making him feel quite comfortable.

Of course again ultimately the Doctor in the classic era is a scientist, not a soldier, so he doesn’t carry guns with him all the time, and he finds violence distasteful

In the Revival however, to start with the Doctor refuses to use guns under any circumstances. (There are a few instances where he will pick up a gun in desperation, but even then he never actually uses it against another life form.)

The New Who Doctors hatred of guns is comparable to Batman in that both will refuse to use guns, or allow others beside them to use guns in a situation where they literally have no choice. Examples of this can be seen in the Tenth Doctor refusing to allow Jack to use a gun on hordes of Toclafane about to strike down on Jack, Martha and the Doctor himself. The Doctor also chastises UNIT for using guns against the Sontarans, gun toting monsters who could easily vaporise them. He also shouts at his clone not to use a gun on Davros and the new Dalek empire, seconds away from their bomb which is about to destroy every single universe going off! Then of course there is the Tenth Doctor refusing to use Wilf’s gun to stop the Master and save 7 billion people.

Finally there is this notorious moment where the Tenth Doctor refuses to shoot the man who killed his own daughter and outright says that he never, ever would shoot anyone, and that the Hath and humans should follow his example.

See what I mean? You laugh when you think of Tennant as being the same character as the first 7 Doctors.

This kind of hypocrisy isn’t limited to David Tennant either. Peter Capaldi’s Doctor similarly is shown to have a distaste for soldiers, which makes no sense considering the Classic era Doctors best friend was a soldier.

Also the Twelfth Doctor acts as though having to shoot Missy will damn his soul forever? Why would killing the Master do that, but not poisoning Solon, or ageing the Borad to death, or throwing Magnus Creel into a machine that slowly drains his bodily fluids and turns him into a burnt out husk, or blowing up Skaro  or smashing a guys head in with a shovel, or using Aggedor to maul Eckersly to death, or shooting the Cyber leader to death, after choking him with gold?

Answer its not. Ironically Missy deserved it more than ALL of those characters, as she’s killed more than all of those villains combined!

Of course this was never a problem in Classic Who as the Doctor did try and kill the Master all the time, in as vicious ways as those other villains. The wiley bastard just always managed to slip through the net. Still if you go by the New series, then the Doctor is a hypocrite and a racist.

The Doctors attitude towards regeneration, as well as regeneration in general in New Who are polar opposites too.

In the Classic era NONE of the Doctors viewed regeneration as death. They all simply viewed it as an advanced form of healing where the Doctors body broke down, and repaired itself, but in doing so, changed appearance.

Obviously his personality was affected by both the trauma of changing appearance, and also simply from living in a different body, but he never acted as though he wasn’t the same man underneath. In fact far from it.

In Caves of Androzani, the Fifth Doctor makes a distinction between regeneration and death to his companion Peri. In The War Games, though the Second Doctor is annoyed at being forced to regenerate, he does not treat it as a death. He refers to it as a change of appearance and isn’t that bothered when the Time Lords offer him a choice of his next appearance.

In the revival however every incarnation of the Doctor has treated regeneration as a death. They all say that everything they are dies, and some new man goes sauntering off and they are dead. They all fear regeneration, though 11 puts on a braver face than 10 and 12 (which wouldn’t be hard lets be honest.) He still treats it as a death and even says goodbye to Clara, which he shouldn’t do if he is still 12.

The idea of all the incarnations of a Time Lord makes zero sense when applied to Classic Who. Why was the Second Doctor more bothered about being fat than dying? Why did the Master try and prolong his life by stealing regenerations? If each incarnation is a different person, then why the hell would he bother? He’ll die once he regenerates anyway?

Also why did the Doctor and Romana refer to her regeneration as a change of body “you can’t go around wearing copies of bodies?”

Also why did the Fifth Doctor and the Seventh Doctor both go over old times with the Brigadier? They never met him. If we go by New Who, then it was some other man who died ages ago. The Brig should really not be of any importance to the McCoy or Davison Doctor.

Also in New Who it was said that the Doctor can only regenerate when he is mortally wounded, but if he dies before the process can begin then he will die for good.

In Classic Who however, the first, third, fifth, sixth and seventh Doctors ALL died, and were even dead for a few minutes before regenerating. In fact the fourth and second Doctors were the only two who were still awake.

Also in the revival a Time Lords regeneration is often shown to blow up its surroundings most of the time, which never happened or was discussed as a possibility in Classic Who. (You’d think that he would have warned Ben and Polly, Sarah and the Brig, Teegan, Nyssa and Adric, and Peri all of whom would have been killed if ANY of the first 5 Doctors had regenerated like 10, 11 and 12 did.

Also why did regeneration always look different in the original series? The directors and producers made a point of this, that each regeneration, much like each Doctor was different. In New Who however the reverse is true and each regeneration not just for the Doctor, but every time lord looks the same.

Also the Doctors origin and story arc of becoming a hero in New Who is different to what we saw in Old Who.

In Old Who we saw Hartnell gradually become more heroic over the course of three years, whilst in New Who the Doctor says that he became a hero when he chose to call himself the Doctor as he made a promise to never be cruel or cowardly again.

Yeah I don’t think you can say the Doctor stopped being an asshole after he chose to call himself Doctor!

Then of course there is the major oversight in Moffat’s part by having the Classic era Doctor flee Gallifrey because he is terrified of a prophecy involving the Daleks, and the Classic era Doctor not meeting them until well after he has left.

Also even just in characterisation and behaviour, then the New Who Doctors never really meshed with the old.

All of the original 7 Doctors were portrayed as much older, wise, colder and level headed characters. The Doctor was very much the epitome of the stiff upper lip type of hero in Classic Who. We never saw him cry over the entire course of the 26 years, he never completely lost his cool. He’d get angry sure, but he’d never scream, stamp his foot and do something that.

He also tended to view the younger women he travelled with as surrogate daughter figures. In a way characters like Vicki, Victoria, Zoe, Jo Grant, Nyssa and Ace, all of whom he loves like daughters are replacements for Susan, his first companion and grand daughter.

The New Who Doctor meanwhile is a very immature, very emotional, is prone to tantrums, or letting his emotions get the better of him, such as with the Racnoss, the Family of Blood or his notorious “I COULD DO SO MUCH MORE!” rant at Wilf in The End of Time. He also falls in love with various human companions such as Rose and Clara.

Even physically the New Who Doctors tend to dress in less flamboyant, more modern clothing which is the opposite of how the Old Doctors used to dress.

Finally all of the Classic era Doctors were shown to be formidable hand to hand fighters, save for the Second.  They all regularly used to beat their enemies into submission too. The First Doctor would often whack his foes over the head with his stick, and even mentioned that he loved fighting when overpowering a Roman centurion, who he even toyed with!

The Third, Fourth, and Fifth Doctors were also shown to regularly overpower and knock out multiple men at once in stories such as The Green Death, Inferno, Day of the Daleks, Genesis of the Daleks, The Seeds of Doom and The Visitation.

The 6th Doctor was also shown to overpower and beat an armed (and homicidal) police man almost half to death in Attack of the Cybermen, and overpowered and smothered Shockeye to death in The Two Doctors.

Finally the Seventh Doctor not only overpowered the Master in their fight in Survival, but he also regularly knocked out much larger and seemingly stronger men unconscious with just one finger!

Many assume that the Doctor wasn’t an action hero, because he was obviously a more cerebral character but that’s not true. He was like Sherlock Holmes in that whilst he primarily outwitted his enemies, he wasn’t afraid of using his fists if need be.

Sherlock Holmes Tough Guy

The New Who Doctors meanwhile are never shown to display any fighting skills. Even when in young, strong bodies like 11 and 10 they NEVER use their fists against their enemies.

The 9th and 11th Doctors don’t get involved in any physical fights of any kind, (though 11 does knock out Bracewell, that’s pretty much it and  it doesn’t exactly show what a great fighter he is, biffing an old guy when he isn’t looking.)

Ten and Twelve meanwhile are shown to be skilled fencers at least in their fights with the Sycrocrax and Robin Hood, which is one trait that carried on throughout almost all of the Classic Doctors too.

Still we never see Ten and Twelve get into fist fights, and over power multiple men whilst unarmed like the Third and Fourth and even Fifth Doctors regularly did.

The New Who Doctors really only follow the same basic formula of the originals. All are mysterious time travellers, all want to explore (though even the the basic motivation of the Doctor wanting to see the universe has changed. In Eccelston’s era he says that he travels because his world is gone, whilst in the Capaldi era he only left because he was scared of the prophecy.)

Of course that’s not to say that New Who never got the Doctors character right. Matt Smith’s interpretation during his first year as the Doctor I thought was the very close to the character for the most part, and Matt was one of the best actors in the role.

Still again, Matt Smith aside, most of the time it was hard to imagine the New Who Doctors as being the same as the original.

See what I mean? Once again when you try and imagine the old Doctor as being the same character as the new one, you laugh.

Other Discrepancies

Old Who states that the Zygons home planet was destroyed by a solar flare, whilst New Who states that it burnt in the first year of the Time War.

Old Who and New Who have different dates for the destruction of the earth in the future, and both show the earth being destroyed under different circumstances with humanity being at different stages. In New Who the human race has expanded out into space and had children with other races to the point where there are apparently no “pure” humans anymore. They are also the major power in the universe, so they no longer even need the earth hence why they are happy to let it burn. They later end up terrorforming another planet called New Earth as their home however.

In Classic Who meanwhile humanity by the time of the earths destruction were a tiny desperate group living on one spaceship, which was set to go to a planet called Refusis, alongside an alien race called the Monoids.

The Brigadier according to New Who was desperate for the Doctor to salute him. This was NEVER mentioned in Classic Who, at any point.

Finally according to New Who, Sarah Jane Smith was in love with the Doctor, whilst according to the original series their relationship was never romantic.

Why This Idea Is For The Best

In my opinion New Who and Classic Who being split into two separate universes is better for both series for a number of reasons.

Number 1 it lets a lot of baggage off of New Who. Be honest here most of the hatred New Who gets is because it isn’t faithful to Old Who. Its not unreasonable for people to be angry at New Who for this, as it was billed as a sequel to the original, yet basically threw away as much of the originals characterisation and lore as it seemingly could!

However if taken as simply being an alternate universe version, then well a lot of Classic era fans I don’t think would have quite such a bad feeling towards it. I’m not saying that dross like Dark Water/Death in Heaven would ever be seen as classics, but still overall I think a lot of New Who, particularly the Tennant era would be seen in a better light.

New Who would just be on the level of the Cushing movies. Great fun (for the most part) but not actually a proper part of the show.

Also for New Who and indeed any other sequel to the original which would follow this formula it would allow them to pick and choose whatever they want from the original series rather than be forced to follow every single part of its canon blindly.

Also I feel that making New Who an Classic Who into separate universes would stop the series from falling into the trap that Marvel comics have, where essentially everything important has to be reset to the status quo at some point.

As all of Marvel’s main output has been set in the same universe since the 60s, Marvel can never really do anything big like kill off a major character such as the Green Goblin, Captain America and Wolverine without someone bringing them back at a later date due to their popularity.

Sure there are some notable exceptions like Gwen Stacey (though even then a clone of Gwen did appear and is still alive.)

This means that we can not only never finish say Spider-Man’s story, but we also can’t do things like have him get married, have children or anything that might change the status quo of Spidey being a young hero who fights bad guys.

Doctor Who due its formula would have fallen into this trap anyway, even if New Who hadn’t been as unfaithful as it possibly could.

We could never resolve the stories of villains like the Master, Davros, the Daleks. Someone could write the perfect ending for them, but then 5 or so years later another writer would completely undo it, because obviously the show can’t lose such a big icon. Similarly big developments that can go on for years like Gallifrey being destroyed, or earth being made aware of aliens in the Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat era would also always have to be undone eventually too and the status quo restored.

Personally I think they should have had used up all 13 Doctors and then had the Doctor die for good, before going on to another universe.

Of course New Who kind of got to the last Doctor a bit too quickly (another cardinal sin of the makers of New Who was the way they wasted so many regenerations, by not using Paul McGann, basically driving Eccelston out after a year, making David Tennant count twice. Even Matt Smith and David Tennant should have done 4 seasons each rather than three.)

Still whatever the case, I think that we should just jump to the chase and say that Classic Who and New Who take place in alternate universes. That way New Who can actually have an ending and finish its storylines without finishing Doctor Who.

DC comics used this formula in the 1960s and I think it worked very well. DC revealed that all of their stories from the 30s-50s took place on an alternate universe (rather confusingly called earth 2,) to the current stories (which was called earth 1).

This allowed them to reboot their series, whilst not throwing everything about the originals out, and it allowed the original versions of their characters to meet the new versions too, such as in the story, The Flash of Two Earths, where the Flash from Earth 1 (Barry Allen) after experimenting with his super speed accidentally crossed over into Earth 2 and worked alongside the original 1930s-40s Flash, Jay Garrick, who had aged realistically since we last saw him.

It also allowed DC to end the original versions of their characters too. The 30s-50s Batman for instance eventually retired, married a reformed Catwoman, and had a daughter with her, Helena Wayne who became a superhero called the Huntress and would cross over to Earth 1 where she would meet the younger version of her father, who she came to call her Uncle Bruce.

DC unlike Marvel could eventually end their most iconic characters stories whilst still keeping them around.

I personally would love to see a story where the New Who Doctor travels to the universe of the original Doctor, and we get to see an old school Doctor in a frock coat, who travels in a TARDIS that looks like the original on the inside. We can also see his earth in 2017 with far more advanced technology, and where the Cyber invasion of the 1980s is a historical fact and mankind has colonies on other planets by the 2010s, and the Daleks resemble their old series counterparts and Davros looks the way he does in Remembrance of the Daleks.

Also in terms of the future of the franchise then it would free it from the baggage of New Who.

I reckon New Who is going to be cancelled very soon, and when it does lets be honest, who would want to carry Doctor Who on?

By casting a woman in the role Chibnall has opened up a huge can of worms for casting the next Doctor. What happens if they want to cast a man? There is going to be outrage from the feminist audience. We’ll be hearing about how its transphobic to want to change the Doctor back to a man, about how its sexist, and at the same time from the people who didn’t want there will be more (correct) accusations of pandering to the PC brigade etc.

Chibnall has marched the franchise into a minefield and made the casting of each Doctor, previously something that people looked forward too, a very ugly situation. What producer or writer would want to take that on? Of again Chibnall didn’t need to land us in this ugly situation. As I have pointed out before he could have just brought Romana back as a supporting character and then spun her off into her own show, but I won’t go over that old argument again.

At the same time because of the shows established and beloved history then I don’t think a full reboot would go down tremendously well either.

A reboot however that ignores New Who and follows on from the original series would be a good compromise. The viewer could decide which one was the real sequel. Then when the third version of Doctor Who finishes in say 10 or 20 years if it has a good run, then the fourth version of Doctor Who could ignore New Who and the third version.

Obviously when I see these alternate sequels to Classic Who would ignore New Who, I don’t mean that they would get Paul McGann back. They’d just have the New Doctor show up, not mention any previous adventures, establish him, and then at some point in his second or third year, he’d casually mention “I’m on my 9th life” establishing this as a direct sequel to the original.

You might think that this would alienate new fans, but most of them have been unhappy with the direction New Who has gone in for the last few years too.

Also this doesn’t erase New Who. It just means that it isn’t the definitive take on what happens next.

I don’t think its fair personally that the makers of New Who get to decide the ultimate fate of the Classic era characters since they had no hand in creating them.

Its kind of like Sherlock Holmes. Only the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are considered canon. All of the sequel stories by various different authors are not definitive. They can be taken as being definitive by their fans, but aren’t the official version.

That’s only fair as no one else has a right to decide how Conan Doyle’s stories should end. Now fair enough the Classic era of Doctor Who wasn’t written by one author, but still most of its creators were involved in some capacity right to the end. Terry Nation for instance still had creative control over the Daleks until the very end of the show, whilst Barry Letts helped JNT cast and create the Ainley version of the Master.

I might add that many of the people who created the original Doctor Who and its icons have/would have hated the New Doctor Who as well. Terrance Dicks for instance hated Missy the female Master, considering her an insult to the memory of Roger Delgado, whilst Terry Nation was famously protective of the Daleks, and never wanted them to appear in stories with other monsters, or ever be given human emotions or traits. He hated The Evil of the Daleks for instance which features the Daleks being infected with the human factor.

Nobody involved in original series is involved in New Who, so I don’t really see why it is anymore official than any other piece of fan fiction?

In my opinion Classic Who should stand as its own piece of fiction. Every single sequel, including New Who, and the hypothetical sequels that ignore New Who, are just one groups idea of what the show should be. None of them are official.

However rather than simply write the sequels all off as remakes, we could have them all occupy alternate realities to each other (alongside the two Cushing movies, and Doctor Omega, Doctor Who’s literary predecessor) and you the viewer can decide which if any take place in the same universe as the original, but at the very least you know they all take place in the same multiverse.

Doctor Who Multiverse

This in my opinion is how the relationship between the various different versions of Doctor Who works. In regards to Big Finish and the comic books, you can split them off into whatever universe you want. Some Big Finish audios can easily take place in N-Space, whilst others that feature River Song would obviously have to take place in M-Space.

N-Space: (Classic Who) The universe that the original Doctor Who series takes place in. In this reality the Doctor was a pioneer among his people before he left Gallifrey. He never visited Davros as a boy, and as a result Davros removed all concepts of mercy and compassion from them. This meant that the Daleks shot their creator, but Davros survived and later split their race into two factions, making them less of a threat to the Time Lords, but a longer lasting threat in the universe.

The earth became aware of aliens in 1986 thanks to the Cyber invasion, though its technology was already much more advanced, leading to the great space age and colonisation of other worlds from the 1970s to the 2020s.

M-Space: (New Doctor Who) In this reality the Doctor visited Davros as a boy and saved him from a minefield.

This seemingly minor action had ripples throughout the history of the universe. The Daleks as a result of having some mercy, spared Davros and kept him as a slave.

As a result the Daleks advanced much more quickly and became sworn enemies of the Time Lords long before the Doctor was born. As a result of this the Time Lords were more advanced when the Doctor grew up, and so his personality was changed by this.

The First Doctors early adventures with the Daleks would have also went differently in this universe as they would have been more advanced, and he would have already been familiar with them.

Perhaps the First Doctor was the first to meet Davros for instance in this reality?

It was also a different renegade Time Lord who became the Master, once again explaining the vast differences in personality.

C-Space: (Doctor Who AARU films) The universe the Peter Cushing movies take place in.

In this universe the Doctor left Gallifrey at an earlier point in his first incarnation. He left with a much younger Susan and his other grand daughter Barbara.

Just like in N-Space (as seen in The Edge of Destruction.) This Doctor visited the 4th Universe (or rather another version of it. Lets assume there is a version of the 4th universe adjacent to every parallel version of the Doctors universe.)

We know from the Edge of Destruction that the Doctor lost the TARDIS in the 4th Universe. Now in this reality the TARDIS was badly damaged when he lost it, and the Doctor in getting it back was mortally wounded and regenerated into his second incarnation (who in this reality resembled Peter Cushing rather than Patrick Troughton.)

The second Doctor, Susan and Barbara were able to make one last trip in their damaged TARDIS to the earth in the 60s. There the Second Doctor going under the alias of the eccentric human scientist Doctor Who tried to repair his TARDIS which caused its interior to change shape.

This version of the Doctor, alongside Susan, Barbara and a human male she was in a relationship with (Ian) would go other adventures in their rebuilt TARDIS as seen in Doctor Who and the Daleks and Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 AD. We don’t know the details of this Doctors later incarnations or adventures however.

Z-Space: (Doctor Omega) The universe Doctor Omega takes place in. In this reality, the Doctor left Gallifrey with Susan round about the same time as his N-Space and M-Space counterparts did.

Like them he visited the 4th Universe, but here his TARDIS was almost completely destroyed when he lost it. The Doctor however was able to preserve one small part of his former time machine, which he cannibalised into a time ring.

He then used this time ring to travel to the earth in the early 20th century with Susan. There he tried to build a new TARDIS from the ring, but ended up creating the Cosmos instead, which he later used to resume his adventures in time and space with human companions. (Leading to the events of Doctor Omega)

Susan meanwhile stayed on earth, having grown attached to this time and planet just like her counterpart did in N-Space.

In this universe the Master also never became a villain. He still left Gallifrey to become a renegade, but here he bumped into the first Doctor and Susan at an early point before his descent into darkness, and before their visit to the 4th universe;

The Doctor and Susan were both able to convince the Doctors old friend that the path he was on was wrong, leading to him becoming a hero like the Doctor.

The Master of this universe eventually goes under the alias of Professor Helvetius. he develops a fondness for earth too and remains in contact with the Doctor and Susan (even saving the Doctor from Mars as seen in Doctor Omega.)

Not much is known about this Doctor beyond his life as the first Doctor.

D-Space: The universe that Star Trek takes place in. We know from the crossover, Assimilation, that Doctor Who and Star Trek exist in the same multiverse, so this is part of the Doctor Who multiverse as well (or Doctor Who is part of the Star Trek multiverse depending on which you prefer.)

As to why the Time Lords, Daleks and Doctor Who aliens don’t exist in Star Trek, and the Star Trek aliens don’t exist in the Doctor Who universes, I see it like this.

In the Who universes, the Klingons who we know had various wars on their home planet, wiped themselves out and never spread into space, whilst life simply never evolved on Vulcan. The Vulcan we see in Power of the Daleks, a lifeless husk, is an alternate version of the one in Star Trek where life simply never evolved.

In the Trek universe meanwhile the Time Lords were similarly terrified of the Daleks and sent an agent to alter with their past. However in this universe the Doctor was never born, so they sent in another agent who not only failed, but was captured and tortured by Davros, and told him everything.

As a result of this the Daleks advanced even greater than they did in any other universe and they and the Time Lords wiped each other out in a war, away from humanity, before either race could spread out into the universe.

As a result of this the Daleks never invaded the earth in the 22nd century, and so humanity was able to advance a lot more quickly, creating the Federation.

The Sontarans meanwhile wiped each other out in a war, whilst the Borg are an alternate version of the Cybermen. Since we never find out the origin of the Borg, lets say that they came from the Trek universe’s version of Mondas, but rather than do full conversions, they only partially converted themselves, creating the Borg instead.

Unlike the Whoniverse version of the Cybermen, the Borg as they came to be known didn’t invade earth, and found a way to exist outside of Mondas and settled in the Delta Quadrant.

The Voth meanwhile are an alternate version of the Silurians of course.
